‘When the World Stopped’ is a joint Community Project between Boyle Family Resource Center and Una Bhan Tourism Cooperative. At a time when the world stopped (temporarily), we would like the community of Boyle and surrounding areas to take a moment to reflect on what this time has meant to them, the good and the bad. This reflection might be written or drawn but is personal to you. We would invite anyone of any age to participate as we all view this ‘moment in time’ differently. We hope to put these reflections into book form at the end of this pandemic and have a ‘snapshot’ of the impact this historical moment had on our community for future generations to come. Pieces can be sent to Emer at [email protected] or Anna at [email protected] If you have any questions please let us know on 071 966 3000
