been growing oats in Cleariestown, Co. Wexford for generations, and
providing excellent straw for thatching. We see them using their
restored 19th century Marshall steam engine to drive the threshing
machine. Tommy McGrath cuts sally willows to make scallops for
roofing staples. Master craftsman, Paddy Casey, gets to work near
Kilmore Quay using his home-made beating pin to drive home the straw
fletchs. Made in 1981.
