Sense of Place through Irish Life and Lore
Visit the National Library of Ireland this Summer. As part of our contribution to The Gathering, we are hosting a series of lunchtime lectures on different aspects of Irish family history research in July and August 2013. Lectures will take place in the Seminar Room at 1pm and will last approximately 30 minutes Attendance is Free, no booking required just drop in on the day.
On Tuesday 30 July join Jane & Maurice O’Keefe, Irish Life and Lore for a lecture on Sense of Place through Irish Life and Lore.
Based in Tralee, Maurice and Jane O`Keeffe have spent the past twenty years compiling in audio, cataloguing and archiving oral history around the counties of Ireland. At present, an oral history collection is being compiled with close relatives of those central to events at Easter 1916, part funded by the Department of Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht. In April 2013, Minister Jimmy Deenihan T.D. launched Jane O`Keeffe`s book "Voices from the Great Houses of Cork and Kerry" which is published by Mercier Press. A full overview of the work of Irish Life and Lore may be seen at www.irishlifeandlore.com
