This recording took place in Noel Barrett’s shop in Washington Street West where he sells model cars and planes. His passion in life is divided between his love for performing and acting, and his model business. The recording begins with his recollections of his first drama, ‘The Swans of the Lee’ in 1950, and a partnership forged with Pat O’Sullivan, which was to endure all their lives. He talks about the many people involved in theatrical performances, including the costume-makers, the stage-set managers, the scriptwriters, and emphasises the voluntary approach taken by many of these people. He also tells many stories about his days travelling around the country, performing in parish halls, and the excitement and the thrills that the company brought to the community.
