Gathering Heritage is a project from Louth which is a follow-on from The Gathering in 2013. The project has interviewed and recorded about 30 people who had returned to Ireland from all walks of life capturing their life stories online.


Gathering Heritage is a project from Louth which is a follow-on from The Gathering in 2013, when we embarked on a journey in 2013 in Louth County Museum called Gathering History to see if we could capture audio recordings for the Gathering Year. We found we recorded such a wealth of stories that we wanted to do more and create an animated series set against the actual recordings laid down by people who have lived interesting lives.

The project has interviewed and recorded about 30 people who had returned to Ireland from all walks of life capturing their life stories online. It has also had contributions from Hollywood director John Moore, musician Jim Corr, EPSN Sports pundit Tommy Smyth and RTE Director General Tom Savage all of whom come from County Louth.

We are also attempting to create a cartoon series, which you can view here.

This year we want to collect oral histories from friends and families of those involved in the 1916 Easter Rising via submission, either using our app or website to our digital library.
