Series 4 Prog 7: Muckross Traditional Farms

In the early 1960s, more people in Ireland were employed in domestic service (cooks, gardeners, maids) than there were teachers. Donal meets Patricia Quinn Murphy who started her working life as an assistant cook aged 16, in a large house in Wexford and learns about a recent but largely forgotten part of our social history.

At Muckross Traditional Farms, Donal is shown how to make soda bread in a bastible and makes Gur Cake, a popular Dublin sweet bread
