in Galway and Connemara. The clothes that are woven are worn now by the people.
Tradition tells us that a tailor is the one-ninth part of a man. It is also said that when the tailors used to be going home around eleven or twelve o clock, they used to always a carry a steel scissors with them, for fear they would go astray.
The implements a tailor uses are a scissors, thimble, machine and a smoothing iron. Shirts are made locally in the homes. Most of them are made from flour-bags when they remove the brands from them, and others are made from shorting that is got in the shops.
Socks and stockings are made locally in the homes particularly on the long Winter nights. Thread is spun also in the homes by means of spinning wheels.
My mother has a spinning-wheel and she spins all the thread with it and we make socks and stockings and pullovers and under-clothing.
When anybody dies in the home or any place else black clothes are worn.
