The People

The people that our Cuairteoirí have had the privilege of meeting include men and women from the ages of sixty to one-hundred and six. They represent a category of people who, through their memories, connect us to a Clare and an Ireland that is barely recognisable today. They recall a youth that was infused with the ancient oral tradition of Ireland and offer a unique insight into our county’s social and cultural history. Cuimhneamh an Chláir wish to extend our gratitude to all those who have thus far welcomed us into their homes and offered us great stories, tradition and memories and of course plenty of tea!
