Oral History Project

In October 2014 the Regeneration Board partnered with UCD Folklore and Oral History to pilot a project of training, collecting and recording oral history from St Teresa’ Gardens. The project has received continued funding over the years and remains open to all who would like to participate. Here you will find some sound clips of some of the stories collected in St Teresa’s Gardens over the years.
