SEAMUS FERRITER AND MICHAEL O DUBHSHLAINE

7.0015.00

Description

On a cold, blustery winter’s day, I called to the home of the late Michael O Dubhshlaine, Baile an Fheirteraigh to collect the retired schoolteacher, and continued on to the home of Seamus Ferriter, where we all sat around the open fire, talking about the old butter route to Cork and great stories about Seamus’s grandfather’s adventures on his many journeys up to the butter market. We ventured out into the wind and the rain to travel to the Ferriter’s castle, situated on a promontory nearby. This recording, made in 1997, encapsulates the history and the atmosphere of the Ferriters family’s existence in the area over many generations.

Keywords: the Ferriter family, Sibéal, nation school, teacher, west Kerry, old butter route, folklore, folktales, Ferriter’s Castle
