Podcast: The Civil War Memory Project with Criostóir MacCárthaigh

An interview with Criostóir MacCárthaigh on THE CIVIL WAR MEMORY PROJECT: An oral history project in association with the National Folklore Collection (UCD), RTÉ and Scratch Films.


For many years the Irish Civil War of 1922-23 was a taboo topic in Ireland, rarely raised in public, except in a partisan manner.

Now 100 years on a project is underway to collect family and local memories of the conflict to recover how it was remembered at the local and family level.

The National Folklore collection is mounting a major project to collect such memories and these will also be recorded in a documentary, currently in production by Scratch films.

Those who are interested in the project and who wish to contribute can contact the National Folklore Collection at [email protected] or Scratch films at [email protected]
