Patrick J. Boyce grew up in the family grocery business premises on the main street of Carrigart. He initially discusses his father’s emigration to America in 1910, his voyage across the Atlantic, his time in the United States and his return to Carrigart to set up his grocery business. The history of the local landlord family, the Clements, is related on the water’s edge at Carrigart, within view of Fanad. Patrick talks about the people of Fanad and their individuality and also discusses Carrigart town and its businesses, and the major advantage to the people which came about due to the good work of John Silke who in the early 1900s introduced new varieties of seed potatoes to Donegal. Also discussed was the Cranford Sports Day on 29th June each year and Patrick’s great passion for golf.
