This recording was made a week after Willie Lynch Walsh’s celebration of his 100th birthday. He had an extraordinary recall of the football matches his father played for Kilmacow which fielded a famous team in its day. Willie grew up on a farm and spoke about the tillage, ploughing and harrowing of the land. His own middle name, ‘Lynch’, stuck to him as a nickname and he explains how that happened. His own hurling career was recalled at great length. He named some of the local players, and spoke about the games that will never be forgotten, namely those played in the 1931 All-Ireland Final.
