This recording provides a detailed account of the Rush farming community, and its survival by vegetable growing for the Dublin markets, down through the decades. Paud Flynn discusses his ancestors and the gradual accumulation of acreage by the Flynn family. Other memories are recounted about transport, the introduction of glasshouses, the difficulties in paying rates during the hungry thirties, and the selling of sand.
