Pictured right is a photo taken outside the Forge in the Square, Millstreet back in the 1970s, where blacksmith Tom Radley had just completed placing four shoes on Dan Hallissey’s donkey (Dan lived in Coole/Drishanebeg).
Radleys Engineering, who built the Spire in Dublin (with John & Tommy as Directors), have their roots in this forge.
Below are three further photos of Tom in his forge, taken in the 1980s.
