South Antrim Living Memories Exhibition at PRONI

News of a current exhibition I wish I could get over to see at PRONI ( I have many connections to Doagh and the area around Whiteahed (Carrick and Islandmagee!). Here's the blurb:

South Antrim Living Memories Exhibition 20th July to 28th August 2015.

The Living Memories Project was a community-driven project that brought together enthusiastic and committed volunteers and local people who were willing to share their memories and so paint a clearer picture of life in their respective communities in the earlyand middle decades of the twentieth century.

Professional assistance was provided by the Ulster Historical Foundation, RodgersThompson Partnership and Storyhouse Films.

The project involved the communities of Doagh, Toome and Whitehead and the areas immediately surrounding these three settlements. It has provided an invaluable resource for those wishing to learn more about the social and economic conditions of life within their communities during the early and mid twentieth century.

The outputs from the project included an exhibition, book, website and three short films. You can find out more about the project and those involved in it at:
