A look at the work of a Protestant Minister in a semi-rural community in Calry, Co. Sligo and Elphinn Co Roscommon.

In this excerpt from the programme 'Signal: A Builder of Boats and Bridges' Canon T.P.S. Wood talks about the challenges of bringing up children in a mixed, protestant and catholic marriage.

The Catholic Church demands that children must be brought up as Catholics, thereby alienating Protestants and creating ghetto-like divisions in society. He argues that the Catholic doctrine forces Protestants closer together. The backdrop for his commentary is a young people's dance.

'Signal: A Builder of Boats and Bridges' was broadcast on 5 December, 1969.
