Lesley Magee, The Balnamore Harpist

Featuring music composed Lesley Magee, played in the deserted Balnamore Mill, near Ballymoney, where hundreds of local people worked until its closure in 1959.

The mill was one of the largest spinning mills outside Belfast. Lesley remembers how the times were tough for the villagers who worked in harsh conditions in the mill and how her grandmother opened a tiny shop in her living room across from the mill. Her sister Linda remembers a childhood spent running about the streets of the village.

Presented by Liam Logan. Also featuring Linda Taylor & Denis Connelly.
