GH Launch2The next phase of the Gathering Heritage Project was launched in Louth County Library on 02nd May 2019. A local audience gathered to hear about how the oral histories project has been granted funding by Creative Ireland for 2019. The project will capture the stories of interesting lives digitally for the first time to share online on platforms such as Itunes and Spotify. “Having sought funding for 5 years we are delighted to finally get funding from Creative Ireland to secure about 30 interviews from Louth” said Project Co-ordinator Jason McGee. “We are now looking for people who have lived epic lives to tell us their story so we can share it with the World.” The recordings will be captured by well known presenter Harry Lee and will then be mastered and uploaded to a digital library.
