Peace Process

Dundalk Filmmaker learns new skills to tell the stories of our past

A new programme of oral history training has begun to help local communities in border areas tell the stories of their past and sometimes troubled histories.

Project seeks to record 'local histories' of the peace process

Hundreds of untold stories about the peace process are just waiting to be recorded.

That is the view of a group of leading academics currently undertaking a €1.1 million oral history project supported by the EU's PEACE III programme. As part of the Peace Process, Layers of Meaning project, experts will provide training and instruction to individuals and communities to help them to accurately record their accounts and recollections for future generations.
