The Two Charlies and John McFall

The Two Charlies and John McFall

Charlie Gillen and Charlie Reynolds talk about the writings of John McFall of Stranocum.

Around 100 years ago, McFall wrote for the Northern Constitution as ‘An Aul Han’, and his correspondence was styled ‘The Bushside Letters’.

Despite the age of these newspaper columns, their rich Ulster-Scots language and typical wry comment and humour still resound today.

Charlie Reynolds reads some samples (Broadcast 7th February 2009).
