In this new summer series presented by Dónall Mac Ruairí, we get to spend a day in the life of people who work in a variety of different jobs.  Today, we will be spending the day with Paidí Ó Cuinn, who had worked in fish farming for 25 years.  Traditionally, fishermen head off out to sea to catch enough fish for the market, but Paidí Ó Cuinn heads deep into the hills of Donegal in Doire Bheatha to take care of thousands of salmon being farmed there for the international market.  Dónall speaks to Paidí about how he started working in this industry, and the changes he has seen over his 25 years.
