About this custom

I think my devotion to the May altar was inspired by my mother, who came from Drumcondra, Dublin, where there were a lot of churches and, thus, a lot of religious devotion and, also, by the custom in schools up to the 1970s, and maybe beyond, of making a May altar.

Where does this take place?
