Description

During Noel Clarke’s young adult life, Maynooth was a less than vibrant town, which would come to life annually for the ordination of the seminarians, who would come to the gates of St. Patrick’s Seminary to bless the local people. The existence of the seminary ensured the survival of local tradespeople, such as tailors, shoemakers, barbers and grocers. Many of the local people were also in employment at the seminary. Noel Clarke’s great interest in radio technology has persisted throughout his life, and here he describes the models of old radios and the wet and dry battery sets.
