Patrick Territt, Corrig, Portarlington
|Main Creator:||Kirwin, Charles, photographer|
Paddy was born in 1901.He lives in a house that was built in 1888 by his father who was a small bilding contractor. Paddy himself always worked on the land all his life and remembers using sickle and scythe and horse drawn binders. Paddy now says that we live in good times and that all the hard ways of life are gone. He can remember as a boy when Tierhogar cemetary was in use. It was there that a Synod of Bishops was held in 1640 and the cemetary ceased to be used in 1916. Mr. Territt feels young for 92 and is very independent and living on his own.
