Atty Dowling (1916 – 2005) – Farm Labourer, Tobinstown, Co. Carlow

Atty worries that times had gone 'nearly too good'. 'People get everything so handy! In my young day, no one could fall out with anyone because you didn't know the minute or the hour or the day you might have to turn to that person. But now, every one is gone independent, even the poor people, us poor people, and we hardly know who lives next door.'
