HISTORY PROJECT

St. Patrick's GAA club is leading a project to document a local oral history of the parish. This would involve recording the stories and local histories from our more senior parishioners, with a view to having these soundtracks made safe for future generations to enjoy. The recordings will be offered to the National Archive for storage (and as a supplement to a project carried out in the 1970's). The audio tapes will be taken over three 1hr sessions, between January and Easter in the New Year, with some of the footage being made available on the upcoming Ardagh St. Patrick's Executive.
