Summary - Building boats, lobster fishing and making walking sticks.

At one time people built boats in Ardmenish. They fished in them. Now [1970], there are only two people fishing; two brothers who catch lobsters. They sell them in London. Hazel wood was available in the forest to build the boats. The contributor makes walking sticks with the same type of wood when he gets the chance. There isn't much wood left now.
