“Border Roads to Memories & Reconciliation”, are hosting a storytelling evening on Thursday 21st November at 7pm in the MacNean Resource Centre, Blacklion, Co Cavan.
The Border Roads to Memories & Reconciliation Project sets out to provide an opportunity and space for residents along both sides of the border to remember and express their feelings in relation to the closure of border roads and the impact that it had on their lives.
Did you live close to a Border Road which was closed? Was your life affected by road closures? Have you any stories on smuggling across the border, life along the border or anything related to the border road closures?
We are also interested in any photographs, newspaper articles or video footage relating to the border road closures. If you have anything you would like to contribute to the project, please come along on the night and have your artefacts photographed, scanned and returned to you on the night.
Come along and find out more about our project and how you can become involved. For any further information please contact Ciara on 00353429742003, or email ciaraking@
