A shovel wants work

Joe is from a family of 22. He was sent to Birmingham where his arms and back were put to work. He ended up in Kilburn and finally in Dublin. A handyman, the man who could fix it. I remember Joe walking home from the pub to his bedsit.

As his Dublin disappeared, his brother back on the farm. He became his carer and custodian of the family farm. Now his brother is gone but the farm still needs to be taking care.
