Peter Lawless spent twenty-four years, from 1960 to his retirement, working with Abbey Textiles, until their closure. He speaks anecdotally about his time there. Peter’s wife Maureen (née King) discusses their family home, Gibbon’s Cottage, which has been in the King family since 1910 and Peter passionately describes his association with St Anne’s Football Club, and his tenure as chairman for twelve years in the 1950s and 1960s.
