Capturing Our Story
Capturing our Story is a project by Kilcormac Development Association with Maurice O’Keefe, Irish Life & Lore which will be launched on Culture Night.
Irish Life and Lore was set up in 1990 by Maurice and Jane O'Keeffe of Tralee Co. Kerry for the purpose of recording in audio, and archiving oral history in Ireland.
In 2022, they started working in association with Kilcormac Development Association to record the stories and memories of local people and Phase 2 of the project is underway. The recordings capture memories of life as it was lived in earlier days in the home, the workplace, the farm and the bog.
The recordings will be made available to the Offaly County Library service who will host them on the local studies website.
For anyone interested in listening to recounts of times gone by, this one is for you!
