Mothers of Modern Ireland
A People’s History



 

Mothers of Modern Ireland
A People’s History

March – July 2014

"An epic journey." - The Irish Post (UK)

"A beautiful...unique people's history." - Irishcentral.com

Celebrate Mother’s Day on both sides of the Atlantic with this special virtual exhibition archiving the last 100 years of Ireland as told by grandmothers from each of the 32 counties.

Mothering Sunday (Ireland) - Sunday, March 30
Mother’s Day (U.S.) - Sunday, May 11

This unique film exhibition of people's history comes from a mother's perspective: the farmer's wife, the nursemaid and the seamstress. The 32 women featured in the exhibition each represent one of the counties of Ireland and tell both an intimate story of family life, and individual views on wide sweeping political activity. Visitors can see how The Troubles have affected people in different ways across the island, or hear stories of how far-reaching the church's influence has been in every aspect of Irish life. There are also stories of sex, music, food, love, immigration, death and ghosts.

Mothers of Modern Ireland is a comprehensive virtual exhibition which allows visitors using their own computer or mobile device to take a self-guided tour of this landmark social history at irishartscenter.org/momi.

The film archive has been created for SouthTipperaryCountyMuseum by Fragments, an independent production company with support by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and private donors.
