Description: Oral history interview. Patrick Lambert (born 1928) is a retired farmer. He was recorded at his home in Rathfarnham, which was once part of the Massy Estate. In the 1940s Patrick's father, Bob Lambert, was allocated the land by the Land Commission. He had taken a prominent role in the War of Independence in Wexford and Patrick explains his involvement. Bob Lambert was a member of the first Dáil and supported de Valera. In 1926 he emigrated to Australia, where Patrick was born. The family returned to Ireland and set up home in Coolock and Patrick has a clear memory of helping his father drive all his live stock from Coolock to Kilakee when they relocated there. The Lamberts became famous for the great potatoes they produced. When he inherited the farm he developed the business by improving the dairying, tillage and fruit growing. The length of this interview is one hour, twelve minutes and forty two seconds.
