Projects

Since our foundation, we have developed a number of collection and education projects, which have directly engaged the Clare public in both active documentation and engagement of Clare's folk heritage and tradition.

At our launch we introduced innovate folded business cards with Irish words that can be used in everyday sentences.  This were available free of charge and fit easily into your pocket, purse or wallet!

Faces of Folklore

Cuimhneamh an Chláir, the Clare Oral History and Folklore Group, recognize that in attempting to record the oral heritage of our county, we inherit and practice a tradition of folklore recording that has been in existence in Clare for centuries. Faces of Folklore, aim to highlight the magnificent effort of folklorists in documenting the oral heritage of Clare, much of which was documented in our native language

Public Lectures & Events

We have held successful lectures across Clare on various folkloric subjects in an attempt to further enhance public interest and awareness of Clare’s folk heritage.  We have also presented at conferences nationally and internationally, where we’ve been able to demonstrate samples of our work.  We will continue to hold public lectures where resources allow.
