Pat Hanly interview

Many people have contacted me to tell me they were delighted to hear Pat Hanly tell his life story on Shannonside Radio recently. Pat of Hanly’s meat plant Ruskey was featured on Community Focus about two weeks ago. Many former employees of the plant told me they were delighted to hear Pat’s voice on the radio.
