For over 20 years, Johnny Mee’s Auld Stock column in The Connaught Telegraph has been
compulsory reading every Tuesday.
Johnny is a treasure trove of memories of the Castlebar and Mayo of yesteryear. His ability to
recall people, places and events right back to his childhood in the 1930s is exceptional.
He has a phenomenal recall and his columns are a marvellous trip to another era, recalling the
characters, happenings and day to day life of previous generations.
Johnny doesn’t just recall his own childhood and adult years but the stories passed onto him by
older generations. He’s a wonderful storyteller with wit, knowledge and he offers a pithy look at
many of the flaws of modern life.
This collection of the best of his columns is a unique and vital social history of Castlebar and
His love for ‘the town I have loved so well’ is clear and he honours the memory of those who
went before him and those who will follow him with this wonderful trip down memory lane.
