  1. The people began to wear boots about fifty years ago. Some children go barefooted at present in Summer, and very poor ones all the year around.
    The water which is used for washing the feet is thrown away. Boots are repaired in Clonakilty. There are nine shoemakers in town. Their fathers and grandfathers were shoemakers. There were not half the shoemakers in the town years ago because people were poor and could not afford shoes. Clogs were worn locally about twelve years ago. They are not worn now. Leather is made in Dunmanway.
