SEAMUS FLANNERY, AGE 87, MONSEA (Part 2)

6.9915.00

Description

The first part of this interview centred on the history of Seamus Flannery’s house. He now describes the furnishings in the house – the settle couch, the old dresser, the scrub-top table and the other items which create an atmosphere unchanged since the 19th century. The only additions were electricity, and the black range. He mentioned how sad he was that he was now too old to do any more repairs to the thatch roof and had employed workers to create a cladding, which now covers this beautiful old building. I interviewed Seamus’s son, Pat about his memories growing up under this thatched roof, and he assured me that his mother would have been a great woman to have met, as she knew so much history about the old place.
