On 1st October Tipperary Age Friendly Older Peoples Council launched Reminiscing Project “Back in My Day” Volume 1 in Cabragh Wetlands.
People in Tipperary were invited to participate in this project and 23 people participated in our first edition. A special thanks to all who took their time to share their stories and contributed to this showcase. The project captured stories and tales of the past, listening to the voices of older people across County Tipperary. It was a fantastic opportunity to capture the living history of Older Voices in Tipperary and to share stories and reminisces of our past, growing up in the county with the younger generations and showcase how in some instance’s things have evolved but also at its core how family and friends impact positively on our lives.
The book was collated by Jimmy Duggan. Copies of the booklet can be obtained at your local library or by request to firstname.lastname@example.org
It is the ambition of Tipperary Older Peoples Council to conduct this project again in 2022 and produce Volume 2.
