This is the second of a three-part oral history project entitled 1922-2022: A Century of Change to mark the centenary of the formation of the Irish Free State (Saorstát Eireann).
Our aim for the project is to record and catalogue the testimony of up to 300 individuals who themselves, or their immediate families, have helped to create the vibrant Ireland in which we live and work today.
The 86 interviewees in part two of the three-part collection include leaders in business and finance, in the community and in the arenas of arts and culture; experts in agriculture, education, media and politics; practitioners of engineering and architecture and owners of Irish Country Houses.
