An­swer: “I used to go all the time when I was younger, but now I might go if the priest comes, that’s all I can tell you, no good to tell you a lie. The women (of the com­mu­nity) are do­ing all the work on this church”

Name: Florence Barry

An­swer: “I got mar­ried in it (in 1955) — I had my chil­dren chris­tened in it, most of them chris­tened in it, years ago the priest used to stay in a house, and he used to bap­tize in the house.”
