Introduction by Joe, the Moyne community organiser

As someone who is very much involved in community and voluntary work i thought the time machine was a great project to get involved in. Especially with my work with Dromard Area Mens Shed. The timing was good as people were coming out of covid 19 restrictions and it was great to interact with them.

The younger people were eager to meet up with their senior neighbours again and their grandparents. Likewise the not so young were delighted to see and hear from the younger people in the community. This could lead to more community organised events where the seniors and the younger people could meet up to exchange lifelong living experiences. The teenagers could pass on their knowledge of the modern way of communication smartphones etc. Thanks to Neighbourhood Network for their support and resources in helping make this project happen.

“My house in Ballymore Co. Longford was a céilí house. Almost every evening after the rosary at 6:30, the neighbours would arrive and wait outside ’til we were finished.”
