Food at the Hiring Fair

Country people often brought their own food with them to the Hiring Fair: however Mrs Emerson recalls how some public houses provided free food to tempt customers through the doors.

John McCullagh, a former butcher in Gortin village in the Sperrin Mountains, describes the outdoor cooking that took place on the bridge. (Broadcast: 03/03/1954)
