The Dún na Sí Memory Project

The new Dún na Sí Memory Project will gather and celebrate a new collection of rural inter-generational oral history memories from people living in the locality and region. To begin the project, Dún na Sí will work with interested grandparents and grandchildren, who will be filmed together for a short casual interview about their childhoods, and the differences between this experience in the past and today. The interviews will result in the production of a number of short videos, which will be shared and preserved for the future as part of the wider Dún na Sí Memory Archive. This is a special opportunity for two generations of a family to uniquely mark their place in the history of the Midlands for future generations to appreciate!

The Dún na Sí Memory Project is kindly supported by Westmeath County Council and the Creative Ireland initiative. Enquiries regarding the project can be made by contacting General Manager Donna Gilligan at 090 64 81183, or via email at More information on the project can be found on their website
