In this episode I talk with Tommy McInnes of Dennistoun.
Tommy was born and has lived in the East End all of his life. We talk about growing up in the Gallowgate, his Mum and Dad, the joy of playing football at every opportunity, the cinemas in the area, school life, working life and how he met his wife, Irene McInnes, who we spoke to in the first episode of this series.
This is the last episode of the current series of Tales Fae the East, so I thought it a nice way to book end things by speaking to Tommy after having spoken to Irene at the start.
