Out for a day with the Ferret in Dunmanway, West Cork, Long Ago.
From Flor Crolwey’s book ‘In West Cork Long Ago’. Mercier Press 1979. A fascinating account of old times. He was from Behigullane, Dunmanway a National Teacher at Behagh National School. He was a founder of ‘An Ból Chumann na hÉireann’ in 1954 the body regulating road bowlng.
The book is redolent of De Valera’s Ireland of the mid 20th century, the views now seems narrow.
