GUEST,Donal Origins: Hiring Fair at Hamiltonsbawn (16) RE: Origins: Hiring Fair At Hamiltonsbaw: Burnhous 11 Apr 03


It was a very common thing when I was a boy in North
Antrim for people to make jokes about someone who was
sick being taken away by 'Burnhouse', since they were the people who picked up all the carcases of cattle which died of disease etc., on the farm. I well remember the stink of their
factory south of Belfast, it was in a clas of it's own.
