PADDY MACKEY, BALLYHORGAN

6.9910.00

Description

Paddy Mackey spoke passionately about the environmental group which was set up in 1999 to preserve and protect life in Lough Derg. Little was known about how the lake had been polluted over the years, and the group, known as the ‘Save Our Lough Derg Organisation’, brought this information to the attention of the public. From a very young age, Paddy had an interest in the lake, and would spend many days with his uncle Dermot Hassey on a boat on the water. Our conversation concluded with stories about the craft of boat-building in the area.
