PADDY GORMAN, GLOSTER HOUSE, BIRR

6.9910.00

Description

Paddy Gorman grew up in the Brosna area, and followed in his father’s footsteps into Gloster House. He worked there from 1932 to 1992, for the Lloyd family, and later for the Salesian Sisters. Paddy showed me around the garden, pointing out all the different vegetable plots and the front garden, and he spoke about his great interest in providing fruit crops. He spoke about the other employees of the Lloyds, and all their different tasks, beginning when the time the bell struck at 8 o’clock each morning on the estate of an old country gentleman.
