From Barrett’s Hill to Carnaun

Home » Library » The Carnaun Centenary Book » Record

To school through the fields for us was a terrifying experience as we had to cross Coffey’s mountain where there were horses of which we were scared. We would run as fast as we could from one side to another hoping the horses would not see us and start to gallop. Further on Rabbitt’s bull had to be avoided so we were always on the lookout for him. In the last field was Walshe’s horse so it was no wonder that we finally took to the road. this was a much longer journey but at least we were not afraid.

On summer mornings we sometimes left some bread hidden in  a stone wall on our way to school. It was lovely to eat on the way home in the evening after being in the sun all day. It was a welcome treat as we would be starving by then.
