Sean O’Shea, a native of Cahiratrant, brought me back to his home place to rekindle old memories. While driving towards the village of Ventry, we visited a small townland called Cahirbeshinnea, a village of 16 small farm holdings, where Sean spoke about the families which lived there. We continued our journey to Church Farm, a place which Sean had often frequented during his childhood. There, he described his emigration to New York and the difficult life he experienced there. He spoke about his return to live in Ballyheigue, where he brought up a family by selling fish and running a small tour bus, which brought people to Mass on Sundays. This marked the end of the first recording.
