Creative Communities Midwest and The GAFF present stories from the Midwest in the first online edition of 'Tiny Little Histories'

  • Tiny Little Histories present a rich and varied selection of stories from the Midwest

Creative Communities Midwest and The GAFF, Limerick will present the first edition of Tiny Little Histories virtually on Saturday 20th November from 6pm across our social media platforms and we are delighted to present a rich and varied selection of stories from the Midwest. Based on the significant success of the Place Based Curriculum in Leeds and Hull, this project will pilot five Tiny Little Histories in 2021.

Stories about Italian paintings that hung in a castle in the Ballyhoura region and where they are now; a video project created by Murroe-Boher Scouts tells of secret meetings under an oak tree in Capercullen; a story about two major historical events which occurred at a now obscure 15th century castle on the outskirts of Rathkeale; Brendan O’Riordan, brother of the late Dolores O Riordan, will chat to some friends about their memories and stories centred around the the Morning Star River, Bruff and what does Our Lady, a messenger boy and a tub of Isopon and the Bedford Motors have in common?

Find out more as all the videos and audio recordings will be available to view from 6pm on Saturday 20th November across You Tube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Soundcloud.
