19 May 2015 – Jim Wilkinson – Dunseverick Memories

Jim gave an interesting talk on the history of Dunseverick, once a busy fishing village which had 2 mills and a kiln. Fishermen had a hard life. The staple diet of the villagers was dried cod. There was no electricity, mains water nor telephones – the nearest being over 2 miles away. Electricity and water came in 1960. Now there are no fishing boats due to EU regulations and the population has reduced to 10. Chris Kirkpatrick gave the vote of thanks to Jim.
