This audio archive featured as both stand-alone clips and/or were used as part of our audio tours playing as the visitor approached the point of interest. There’s a wide variety of themes below told both with professional narrators, but also with some of Ireland’s finest characters, some sadly gone. We’ve been revamping and remastering the many clips we have in our archive in 2021 on Audioboom as both podcasts on multiple channels and Spotify playlists, where possible.
Preserving local heritage through oral history is both a privilege and a pleasure in working in this field. Let’s help preserve the stories of your area for posterity while the best characters are still about to recall their many stories and recitations. Contact us below to make it happen.
We need more voices on the record and hope that with the DLG project in place, recordings like these will be commonplace in a few year’s time.
Enjoy excerpts of some of the best stories, anecdotes and tales, available to listen for free anytime. we’ve recorded a wide range of podcasts on everything from customs to idioms, anecdotes to recitations, mythology to folklore – mainly from Ulster, but plenty from beyond there too.
