He also remembers a water machine used for keeping down the dust on the roads, and the traders of the town who used to display their wares outside their shop doors. Track 2: Hilliards Merchants of Killarney are recalled in great detail. The advertising brochures printed by MacMonagles are described. Track 3: The books compiled and published by Paddy MacMonagle over the years are discussed, and the talks which he gave to the Society for Folk Life Studies, both at home and abroad, are also mentioned. Track 4: His views on the loss of the Town Council and on the old Town Hall are provided. The films which were shown there by his father, before the move to East Avenue Hall, the entertainment provided by Danny Collins and Maurice McGough during the interval, and the fire which occurred at the cinema at one time are all remembered.
