Recording an older person's memories of schooldays and/or church.

Ethne McCord
St. Salvator's Church Youth, Glaslough, County Monaghan

This is an intergenerational project which will focus on the sharing of experience and knowledge. Young people will interview an older member of their family, a friend, or neighbour in relation to the schools and churches they attended when young. Interviews may be recorded by video or in writing. Many of the local Church of Ireland churches and schools attended by parents and grandparents in the local area were closed as the Church of Ireland population declined and it is important that this heritage is not forgotten, but the memories recorded and passed on to future generations. It is intended to share the project with the congregation of St Salvator's, the local Northern Standard newspaper, the Clogher Diocesan Magazine and, hopefully at a future public heritage event in St Salvator's Church in either 2020 or 2021, public health advice allowing.
