About 26 years ago there lived in Killuragh Capamore, Barony of Coonagh, Co. Limerick, a man by the name of Tom Barry. he was a cooper by trade, and he used to make tubs, keelers, firkins, barrels, and timber cans for milking cows into. He used to sell the firkins, to the Cappamore Creamery and to Toher Creamery. The firkins used to hold 1 Cwt. of butter. Since he died the creameries make boxes for the butter.
