Seamus McHugh is a native of Gortahork where the McHugh family have lived for several generations. He recalls his younger days when all the small farming families would migrate to Scotland where the men and women would pick potatoes and the women would also gut fish. The local people were very close-knit and supportive of one another. The old traditions of farming are examined by Seamus and he discusses the old superstitions of the people. He trained as a national school teacher and taught in Falcarragh until his retirement in 2003, having previously taught in other schools around the county.
