Our work has been been awarded/nominated for the following awards:
We have documented the life stories, memories and folklore of hundreds of Clare's oldest citizens with people aged 65 – 106 (fourteen over the age of 100). In total, over 150 of those recorded have since passed away.

We have been fortunate to obtain support from the Clare Local Development Company towards capital, research and animation.
