Bha am fear-àbhachdais, Iain Urchardainn, a' toirt toileachadh do luchd-èisteachd air feadh na Gàidhealtachd is nan Eilean fad leth cheud bliadhna, o thòisich e ann an 1952. B' ann mar 'Johnny Bogan' no 'The Bogan' a b' eòlaiche a bha daoine air. Chaochail e san t-Samhain 2006. Anns an earrann-èisteachd seo à Rèidio Chaolas Mhoireibh à 2000 tha e a' bruidhinn mun a' bheatha aige mar ghobha.

Interviewer: What did ye do when ye left school then, Johnny, first?

What did Ah do when Ah left school, Ah went to work with ma uncle in the blacksmith's shop.

Interviewer: The blacksmith's shop, there. Were ye shoeing horses? Did ye get round to that?

Ah did try it, but Ah didn't like it. But Ah liked in the smiddy. Ah didn't mind in the smiddy; Ah liked forging.

Interviewer: Yes?

Oh, Ah loved forging. But mind you, Andy, Ah wis only fourteen an Ah wis swinging the big hammer from the day that Ah went in an ye worked from eight in the morning till six at night. Ye got half an hour for dinner an ye never got a teabreak. Sometimes swinging the hammer, pumping them bellows, up an doon, all day. An ye had to pump it at the right speed to get the right heat. Ah think Ah discovered then than blacksmiths can swear. They really can swear. Even though he wis my uncle he could swear if things didn't go right. But mind you, it wis hard work.

Interviewer: So ye'd be making implements an repairing implements.

Repairing implements, making, ringing cart wheels. Making all - everything and anything wis done in the blacksmith's shop.

Interviewer: Oh yes.

The blacksmith's shop was the place, but it wis hard, hard work. Very hard work. No one realised for all they were getting, the money that they were getting for the work they were doing, it wis sweat, all day long. My uncle wis always bothered with what they - hacks on the hand, ye know? Torn apart. An he used all kinds of home cures to try an cure them
