 Bere Island Project Group’s work to record the oral history of Bere Island is ongoing.

Everyone’s stories has historical importance, for your own family and for future generations of our island community.  If we do not collect and preserve these memories, then one day they will disappear forever.   Recordings can be done in person at the Bere Island Heritage Centre,  at your home, or online via Zoom.

Recording our island’s oral history came about as a result of Bere Island Project Group’s participation in the Heritage Keeper’s Programme which is run by the Burren Beo Trust and The Heritage Council.  Members of the Recording Our Bere Island Stories Group are:  Barry Sullivan (Seir), Eilis Duggan, Barry Hanley, Seamus Hanley, Paul Moore and Helen Riddell.

If you would like to record your family’s stories, or take part in this project, please contact Helen Riddell at  or on 027 75099.
