Úna Bhán Tourism are conducting a project called Mná na Buille, a celebration of the culture and creativity of the women from the community of Boyle, especially those born prior to 1940. The project will capture their stories and experiences through different times and situations, often funny, often sad, but all amazing. Stories that reflect growing up in the local community, going to school, the chores they had to do, how they socialised, met their partners and how their lives led them through marriage and rearing families. Stories lost if not recorded and passed to future generations reflecting their strength and endurance during different times, bringing rural and urban experiences and bridging different classes together. The project will reflect and respect specific identities in a positive way to also include women with Dementia and those that may now find their homes in care and nursing homes.
