The Doyles of New Town trace their history back through many generations. In this recording, Patrick Doyle describes the small farmers’ existence in a cluster of farm cottages, where all the inhabitants were related to one another. He goes on to talk about his 37 years promoting Muintir na Tire, travelling to a great many parishes around Ireland. He describes his achievements in this area, and one of his great successes was organising the vital task of listing tombstone inscriptions in Duiske Abbey cemetery, which pioneered the organisation of this important work in other places.
