In Paddy Daly’s family there was a tradition of working for the McCalmonts of Mount Juliet. Paddy spent 37 years gardening for Major Victor McCalmont. This recording involves a tour of the grounds, starting with the rose garden, continuing on to the glasshouses. In this conversation, Paddy created an image of how the garden would have looked in Victorian times.
