The Carlow Workmans Club was established in 1898 in Brown Street, and is today one of the last Workmans Clubs in existence in this country. The recording with Paul Horan covered the history of the club, and Peadar Birmingham spoke about the members of the club. Catherine Kelly was the first lady to become a member of what had always been a men’s club, and she described her experiences there. Seamus Byrne, now the longest serving member of the club, tells of his memories of his long membership of a great club.
