Who shall tell the stories? — 4 Comments

  1. Wonderful memories Ian, we must keep talking to our parents to keep the memories alive…

  2. Mum and Aunt Ella used to sit and talk about things like that when she came to stay with us. Both had great stories to swap.

  3. If that was my Granny the description would have morphed into a long involved tale about the man who loaded the milk, his uncle the priest and the rest of the family tree.

  4. I think Ireland is much better at recording oral history than England, maybe because a strong sense of identity is more acceptable.
