Cumann na Daoine Women’s Group Legacy Project – the First Chapter

Cumann na Daoine Women’s Group Legacy Project –

The First Chapter

The Legacy Project began with a series of interviews conducted by local historian Michael Twomey with some members of the Cumann na Daoine Women’s Group in 2016. The women answered questions about their lives and about the world they grew up in. They also reflected on how much life has changed, particularly for women, but also for families and children. The Project was coming back to life in 2020 until Covid19 slowed us down.

Until we can return to the Legacy Project, here is a first edition of reminisces to keep us going. Myself and CnD Women’s Group Chair Nikki Bray are looking forward to hearing more stories from members old and new when we can meet, and chat, again.
