It contains his nephew Seán Radley interviewing Tom Jack back in the 1970s, and this short audio recording gives a taste of life in a forge. The Millstreet accent is strong and rich in this one.
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.

Although not fully ready for the official opening of Millstreet Museum & Tourist Information Centre as further signage and wall units have as yet to be completed we shall be opening to the public from Wednesday.

Restoration work has been very costly and this Annual Collection is our main source of funding. We very much appreciate the kind support of everyone. (S.R.)
We also came across some other historical photos from Millstreet, some of which we had not seen before, on the Irish Historical Picture Company website.

Millstreet Museum Society wishes to express sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who so generously subscribed to last weekend’s Church Gate Collection held outside St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. The amount collected was €1992.88. These funds will be used in the refurbishment of the new Museum / Tourist Centre at Carnegie Hall, Millstreet. We are hoping to be permitted to begin this work as soon as final confirmation is processed by Cork Co. Council. Special thanks to our many dedicated helpers who assisted at the Collection. (S.R.)
Millstreet Museum & Tourist Information Centre Church Gate Collection takes place this weekend – 13th & 14th August 2011 – outside St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. This is our main source of funding for the year. It is earnestly hoped that we shall be back at our Carnegie Hall location very shortly. Most of our Archives have now been moved to the new purpose built Museum Archive Centre at Mount Leader. We deeply appreciate the fact that the vast volume of our historic material was very kindly housed on a temporary basis and without cost by the Duggan Family of Green Glens for almost the past three years. Support for our Collection this weekend would be greatly appreciated so as to assist us in the re-establishment of our Museum at Carnegie Hall and for the provision of a significant Tourist Information Centre. Sincere thanks. (S.R.)
