Local Roads [duchas:5029849]

When the English soldiers came to this district first, they forbade anyone to go the roads they always went either to town or to Mass. People made mass paths. One mass path was down beside our haggard over the bridge up at the back of the factory in Poulmounty through a hilly field called the Big Field out through Mr Murphy's field across to Doyle's field and out at the chapel in Drummond
