Listen to a 91 year old hill farmer describe Wicklow cheviots from 40 year ago

The other morning I slipped into the field to check on a Cheviot ewe with a fresh lamb. I was amused when she started to snort at me and so I turned on the video to see would she stay at it. Then I remembered something Jim Nolan told me and Dermot one evening in the hotel in Glenmalure when he was having a pint, and you can hear him too but watch the video first!

 

Jim will be 92 this coming August, all going well. He has grazed sheep on his hill since he was a young lad and has some great stories, spanning back all that time. Jim’s brand, JF, for example, has been on that ground since 1907, when his grandfather first put sheep up there!
