In this recording with Eamonn Wall, the focus is on his involvement in the GAA at the CIT campus. Ever since his arrival at the RTC he had an involvement in hurling and football, which played a central role in the students’ development. He speaks about the successful staff football team, and about the history of the Sigerson (football) and Fitzgibbon (hurling) Cups, as well as the Ashbourne Cup for camogie. He himself was involved, from the early days, in organising the football teams. Fulltime sports officers and coaches are now in place for more than ten years who bring their skills and abilities to the organisation and development of games to CIT. When RTC Cork first opened its fledgling campus, sports facilities were not a priority as they consisted of two tennis courts and an all weather hockey pitch. Through the far sighted and enlightened efforts of the former Director Dr Pat Kelleher and former Registrar Brendan Goggin, lands were purchased which allowed for the development of the modern facilities now available for all sports activities. Eamonn Wall discusses the bonding between the students and the staff, and strongly feels that sport pulls people together. He also speaks of the breaking down of barriers between the Institutes of Technology and Universities, due to the establishment of new structures for GAA games in higher education.

Peter Kealy's farm cottage stands on the foothills of the Blackstairs Mountains. The recording took place as we walked through Peter Kealy's farm. The local folktales were told in abundance and Peter sang local ballads which contained stories handed down from generation to generation. He has a passion for hurling which he played for the county for 15 years in the 1940s and 1950s. The self-sufficiency of the small farmer on the hillside was described as were the pastimes in the difficult years of the Emergency period.

John English was born and grew up in Wexford town, and is steeped in the tradition of hurling. He joined the civil service and began work for the council in Carlow in 1962. He worked in housing, sanitation, planning and road design. The roads at the time needed a lot of attention and it gave him great satisfaction to see the development of the roads in the county. He worked under six County Managers, and he recalled his colleagues in the council.

Rita Foley is a native of Malahide. She married Des Foley from Kinsealy whom she had known since they were teenagers. Des was a great footballer for Dublin, he stood for the local elections in 1965 and was elected for North Co. Dublin. He followed his father Paddy Foley’s example when he invested in land in Dunshaughlin. Paddy also ran a courier business in the city and county of Dublin. He had 20 drays pulled by horses, which were in use until the introduction of lorries to the business. Rita remembers her young days in Malahide as she looked through some old photographs and she recalled with pride her prowess at hockey when she played for Loreto School. She is also very proud of the two medals which Des won for football and hurling matches played on the same day! She recalled her husband’s strong friendship with their neighbour, former Taoiseach, the late Charles Haughey.

I met Jimmy Hearne at his brother Danny’s house where Danny’s dogs joined the company. Jimmy is now in his 91st year, and his passion for football and hurling was clearly evident in this recording. Jimmy was fostered out to his aunt at a very young age. He played football with a local team, Kilmoganny. He spoke about many of the great players of that time. Jimmy recited a song associated with the Kilkenny football team of 1904 and he continued with another ballad on the Battle of Carrickshock. Jimmy’s stories are mostly from recollections of what he heard at meeting-houses. He finished by showing me sheep-shearing shears used by his grandfather and father, and spoke about the rearing of sheep.

This recording encapsulates the way of life of a young boy growing up on a farm in earlier days. Jim Woodcock’s earliest memory is of hearing the shots of the Coolbawn ambush during the War of Independence. His schooldays are discussed, as is his time spent in Dublin. He talks eloquently about his love of the game of hurling, and of travelling to Croke Park to watch the 1931 All-Ireland Final. The train journey cost 3 shillings and the cost of entrance to Croke Park was sixpence. One of Jim’s dearest and most evocative memories involves experiencing the deep red sky the evening of the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939.

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.

In this recording, Paul Murphy recalls the war years and the Emergency, and the difficulties in farming at that time. Jimmy Lennon, the local ploughman who worked on the Murphy farm, was a champion ploughman, who tied for first place in an All Ireland Ploughman competition at that time. It was not until the Emergency period, when compulsory tillage was introduced, that Paul Murphy began to grow wheat for export. The local pattern day at Sheastown is recalled, it was a great and important day at the holy well. The family would also travel to the pattern day at St Mullins in Carlow. As a young lad he would cycle to Croke Park in Dublin when Kilkenny were playing in the All Ireland Hurling final. He discusses the meanings of local placenames, family names, sheep rearing and harvesting the crops.
