We’ve seen so many brilliant community groups and schools across Ireland take part in the Community Time Machine project. Here are some highlights from the project so far. These memorable interviews and portraits are guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
“Our grandkids bring us joy; getting to see them and watch them come into the world and always being there for them and helping look after them.”
“There are good people living here and they are always willing to help each other.”
“I have great memories of the children growing up and people calling into the house and céilidhlíng and having a cup of tea and a laugh.”
“I am particularly proud of getting village status for Legga and Moyne. I was also the first and only Lord Mayor of Dromard!”
“By playing in the local tennis and golf clubs, this gives us an opportunity to do something we like as well as seeing friends and familiar faces from the community.”
“I started a community festival to raise money for St. Luke’s Hospital Dublin. The festival has run every year from 1991 with the exception of 2020 and 2021 due to Covid. It has raised thousands.”
Neighbourhood Network would like to thank everyone who participated in this project, especially our brilliant Community Organisers, teenagers and seniors. Thanks to participating County Council, The Creative Ireland Programme, Age Friendly Ireland & The Department of Rural and Community Development, and all the community organisations who helped to spread the word about the project.
