Eòghann Eairdsidh Mac Chaluim o Còrnaig Bheag a’ bruidhinn ri Mairead Caimbeul anns An Gearran 2003 mu dheidhinn seann dòighean àiteachas air Tiriodh, nuair a bha Tiriodh fèin-fhoghainteach, agus mar a tha na dòighean seo air atharrachadh. Tha e a’ bruidhinn mu dheidhinn a bhith a’ dèanamh an talamh ullaichte, a’ cuir an sìol, treabhadh agus cliathadh, mar a bha an coirce air a stòraidh agus a chiad inneal buanaiche agus inneal-fogharaidh a thàinig a Tiriodh.
