The Blacksmith's Trade at Killaghy

Willie Cromie is down the Ards at Bob Martin’s old smiddy at Killaghy. He meets Bob’s son Ronnie, Bob’s cousin, Alec Martin, and Wilbert Magill and they reminisce about the olden days when people didn’t work on Sundays and scarcely took holidays - and the strength it took to be a blacksmith.
