First Person: Mike Carney
Mike Carney: Blasket Islander, 93, Massachusetts.
I felt pretty lonely leaving the island. I left because I needed to help my family out.
I worked in Talbot Street for three years for five shillings a week. I don't imagine too many would be willing to work in Dublin for that money now.
