Mark Johnston – Castletownbere, West Cork.


‘I was born in Donegal Town. My favourite memory from childhood was during the summer holidays, being out morning to night with my father who was the local vet, travelling up to a hundred miles a day, from farm to farm on his rounds. I would help a bit but at times I’d have to stay well back in case I got a kick from a cow.

The farmers wifes would always want to give us a cup of tea and a sandwich if we had time. The highlight of the day was stopping in Killybegs for lunch to have fish & chips on the harbour. These memories are as fresh in my mind as if they happened yesterday, it is the simple things in life that create the most cherished memories.’
