At Irish Life and Lore we depend on funding from individuals, organisations and private companies in order to continue our work. Much of our time each year is devoted to the sourcing of funding, which obviously reduces the time we can allocate to recording, cataloguing and archiving oral history in Ireland.
We are extremely grateful to all of our sponsors over the years, and the Irish Life and Lore archive of over 4,000 recordings would be very much depleted were it not for your generosity and foresight.
The oral history projects on which we work are available free of charge for research and study in Irish public libraries into the future and provide valuable, and often unique, primary source material. Our work requires substantial funding for travel, recording, editing, cataloguing, digitising and archiving.
We would be very grateful indeed for your contribution towards continuing to collect the unique testimonies of the people of Ireland as they recall and describe in vivid detail, and in their own voices, their memories of lives well lived, their achievements and less successful times, and their views on an Ireland which has undergone immense change over the course of their lifetimes.
