    Description

    The Úna Gan a Gúna: Irish Women’s Oral History Project exists to ensure that the memories of Irish women from the 1930s onwards are heard and are recorded and kept as a part of Irish history and the histories of Irish people travelling out and across the world. This is achieved through recording and preserving oral histories and, in the process, bringing different generations of women together to share past experiences: good times and sad times, learning from each other, passing on our stories.

    We gather the stories, memories and opinions of Irish women born in each decade of the twentieth century and keep copies of any documents (such as photographs, letters or diaries) they may wish to share. The lives of Irish women changed dramatically during this time and we want to find out how much their experiences and attitudes have changed or stayed constant over the decades.
