The Fair days and the milking stools
Local marriages, horses, the large cattle and pig Fairs, 'tanglers', the advent of farm mechanisation, the harvest and threshing, hand milking and the War of Independence and Irish Civil War connection. It's all here in episode 9. In the days of "no waste" hear what it was like to grow up in rural Ireland in the years after the second World War. Find out from the horse's mouth about the days of 'Woodbine's, rural electrification and ration books, why good neighbours were indispensable and why the humble cow is still as important now as she was then. Recorded in a cow byre in county Tipperary with Tom Clancy.
