Boyle Women Share Their Stories

image

Úna Bhán Tourism have official launched their beautifully put together catalogue of memories and stories provided first hand by twenty local women titled ‘Mná na Búille’. Stories which may have otherwise been lost if not recorded and passed to future generations reflecting these ladies’ strength and endurance during different times. 

A celebration of the culture amd creativity that exists; their stories reflect growing up in the local community since the 1920’s; going to school, the chores they had to do, how they socialised, met their partners and how their lives led them through marriages and rearing families. 

This project was supported by the Creative Ireland Programme, an all – of – Government five – year initiative, from 2017 – 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy. Further information available from creative.ireland.ie and Ireland.ie.

If you would like to purchase a copy of ‘Mná na Búille’  it is available through Boyle Craft Shop located in the Grouds of King House or online by visiting http://bit.ly/2Wan2qf
