Patrick Clancy is a native of Bunduff. His father had a great love for horses, a passion which was inherited by all his sons. Patrick recalls becoming an apprentice saddler when he was very young, and making his first harness at thirteen. Also recalled are his schooldays which he fondly remembers. Patrick shares great detail on the various techniques he learnt as an apprentice saddler and he explains that immense skill was needed to craft these essential items. He says that he could never have foreseen how quickly the horse and cart would be replaced and a whole way of living wiped out.
