Care of the feet.
Most of the boys in former times did not wear boots until they went to work. When going to school, either in winter or summer they went bare-footed. Even girls went bare-footed 40 years ago, but they do not go like that now.
Boots are made & repaired in Lucan by three bootmakers. Mr Dempsey (main street)was the only one for 60 years ago. Leather was never made in Lucan neither were clogs worn.
