Irish Life & Lore from Ireland
Through our decades of work in the compilation of audio recordings and books, thousands of Irish voices from all regions of the country have been captured and archived for the future. We document Irish local, national and social history, along with her unique culture, customs and traditions.
» The 1916 Rising Oral History Collections Parts I and II, which is funded by South Dublin, Fingal, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown and County Kildare Councils and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, will be launched on January 21st 2016.
The Collection is comprised of 245 hour-long audio recordings which were compiled with the sons, daughters, grandchildren and other close relatives of those central to events at Easter 1916. Also included in the project is a 450 page illustrated and indexed volume which provides a synopsis of the content of each of the recordings.
