As a child visiting Liscannor, I could sit for hours watching the fishermen repairing their nets. This took great skill and patience, so the workers in this factory in Killybegs must have had their work cut out for them to manufacture and quality control the manufacture of full nets!

    Does this image need to be flipped as the writing on the tank in the apex of the roof looks back to front and on the cardboard box

    Tedious work and maybe for a small net profit.

    Swan Net-Gundry in streetview. The larger building to the right is not on the 1995 aerial, just the centre section of the left hand, more Southerly building.

    Mr Swan sounds like a good man. I wonder if he is in any of these photos? From the obituary - " ... Albert Swan came ashore in the early 1970s and in 1974 set up a branch of the Swedish netmaking firm Syversen Trawl in Killybegs. This was to become his own firm, Swan Net. The company built up an international reputation and its nets were sold right around the coast, in the Shetlands, and as far away as Alaska, Vancouver and Chile. Latterly, the Icelandic group Hampidjan took a major share in the company, and earlier this month 2002 it merged with Gundry's Ltd of Killybegs - founded by Albert Swan's contemporary, James McLeod. ..."

    Aside Mr Swan walks into a pub, and the barman says “I named my pub after you.” Mr Swan says “you called your pub Albert?”
