When Todd Andrews took responsibility for C.I.E., he rang “Dusty” Miller and informed him that he was to go to America and Canada on a promotional tour in his place. He recalls his very successful trip on that occasion and the great interest in Bord na Móna and its work. In 1966, in a change of career direction following some disillusionment with Bord na Móna, “Dusty” worked on a three year project as deputy director to Professor Paddy Lynch on a study of Irish technical colleges. He then set up the Irish Science Council and later worked for four years with the Investment Bank of Ireland. The last segment of his most interesting working life was spent in the Irish subsidiary of the French company, Total Oil.

Eddie Keher was recorded at his home in the lovely village of Inistiogue where he graciously placed on record his recollections of his glory days on the hurling field. The recording begins with memories of his parents. His father was a Sergeant in the Garda Siochana who came from Roscommon. His mother`s father, Ned Brown, joined the Hong Kong Police at the turn of the 19th century. Eddie`s involvement in hurling begin in primary school when he played in the Schools League under the direction of Master Walsh. His prowess at the game was obvious, and at the early age of 9 years, he was part of the local Under 14 team. Later he attended St. Kieran`s School in Kilkenny where Fr. Tom Maher became his mentor and friend, and they were to remain close all through Eddie`s long hurling career. The young hurler began his banking career in 1959 in the Provincial Bank in Capel Street, Dublin, and there he joined a club of Kilkenny exiles, with whom he trained. It was in Dublin that he was to meet his wife Kay, who comes from Gowran. In 1974 he was transferred to work in Kilkenny. He speaks at length about the GAA in general and his views on its management and structure. He recalls his own playing days, his competitive instinct which still remains, his free taking talent, his hurl he used and its maker, and he compares today`s game with that of his own time.
