Milk Collection, Lower Br. of Drinagh, Co. Cork
|Main Creator:||Snodgrass, Lee photographer|
Creameries such as Lowertown Branch of Drinagh Co-Op west of Schull have ceased to function as seperating stations and are now collecting points for smaller milk suppliers who deliver their milk to a tanker-lorry ( the milk from larger units is collected ex-farm from refrigerated tanks ). The Creamery Manager has now been replaced by a computer installed in the truck. With the passing of the ceameries also goes an important aspect of rural social life where in the past news was exchanged and yarns swapped while the farmers waited their turn in the queue.
