I know a certain man called Tommy Kearney. He lives in Ardralla in the parish of Aughadown, and he earns his living by making baskets.
In the winter months he gathers sally-rods which grow along the brinks of rivers or streams and he takes them home and "saves" them. Then he weaves them into baskets.
On fair or market days he takes them to the local towns in his donkey cart and sells them at about half-a-crown or three shillings each.
