Creative Communities Midwest and The GAFF, Limerick will present the first edition of ‘Tiny Little Histories’ virtually on Saturday, November 20 from 6pm across their social media platforms and they are delighted to present a rich and varied selection of stories from the Midwest. Based on the significant success of the Place-Based Curriculum in Leeds and Hull, this project will pilot five Tiny Little Histories in 2021.

Stories about Italian paintings that hung in a castle in the Ballyhoura region and where they are now; a video project created by Murroe-Boher Scouts tells of secret meetings under an oak tree in Capercullen; a story about two major historical events which occurred at a now obscure 15th century castle on the outskirts of Rathkeale; Brendan O’Riordan, brother of the late Dolores O Riordan, will chat to some friends about their memories and stories centred around the the Morning Star River, Bruff and what does Our Lady, a messenger boy and a tub of Isopon and the Bedford Motors have in common?
