Country business at the Hiring Fair

The business of the countryside took place at the Fairs, such as at Roughford village in County Antrim described by Mr Ilroy; and G.B. Newe talks about one of the more notable and oldest Fairs of the North, Crebilly Fair.

Glens woman Mrs. Emerson talks about how Fairs were commonly held beside a graveyard. (Broadcast: 03/03/1954)
