Cuimhneamh an Chláir on Clare FM on the 6th, 7th and 8th January

Cuimhneamh an Chláir recently asked Paula Carroll to listen to the stories they have gathered and to compile radio features showcasing the rich oral heritage of County Clare. Over the next few days you can hear Paula’s selections on Morning Focus on Clare FM between 11am and 12pm.

Tuesday 6th January 2016:
WOMEN’S WORK: In this piece we hear about Womens’ Work - working on the bog, growing vegetables, tending fowl, drawing water, raising children. The voices you will hear are Susan Williams from Kilfenora, Teresa Flynn from Mountshannon, Nora Canavan from Doolin (who at 107 is one of Clare's oldest citizens).

Wednesday 7th January 2016:
TRANSPORT: In this piece we hear about how people travelled - from the first car in Quin, to the first sighting of an aeroplane over Scariff, to the trusty old High Nellie. You will hear the voices of John Hastings from Quin, Nora Canavan from Doolin, Margaret Waterstone from Mountshannon, and Susan Williams from Kilfenora.

Thursday 8th January 2016:
