Tell Me A Story with Eddie Lenihan


Episode 19 : Trades Part 2

Season 1, Ep. 19

This month, Eddie continues his study of the old trades of Ireland. Things back then were made to last, where as things today are made to wear out. There was a dignity and quality behind the work, tools and utensils crafted to the highest standard by skilled trades people. The harness maker, the tinker, the hatter, the cooper, the potter, the basket-maker; Eddie explains how each trade was so necessary within the local communities.
