‘Before embarking on a new life in London from rural Ireland, my father chose not to bring his modest but grand selection of livestock with him. Unfortunately there were no ‘Noah’s Arks’ back in those days. So, he had to find a new home for the livestock, which comprised of 2 heifers, 14 sheep and 11 chickens.’
– Ian Mcdonnell
