Frank Enright of Abbeyview in Quin

We are delighted to share this wonderful interview between father Frank Enright from Abbeyview in Quin, and daughter  Anne Flanagan.

Frank, the eldest of five brothers and one sister, was born in Dublin. He then moved to the home farm in Drumline, Newmarket On Fergus at the age of one and a half.

When he married his good wife Nita, they went to live in Smithstown where Anne and her brother Ger were born. They later moved to Quin when the land was bought out by Shannon development.

Frank moved into the farm and house in Quin in 1968. Quin was very small then with only three of four shops, four pubs and two guards. Mostly involved in dairy farming he remembers bringing the milk to the creamery in Moyreisk and co-op formed with the Hassett’s and the Murphy’s.
