Welcome to ‘What’s the Storie;’ an initiative that aims to capture a snapshot of Ireland in the aftermath of the Celtic Tiger. Our team have been travelling around the South-West of Ireland since January 2013 recording video and audio interviews with a diverse range of people; from a Kerry-based bog snorkeller to a young female farmer in Cork.

By assembling this on-line collection of material, we are bringing the traditional Irish art of story-telling into the twenty-first century. We want to provide a resource where you can listen to and watch a series of real-life stories from people representing all walks of life and construct your own beliefs on the concept of “Irish Identity” today. Stories have been published under six headings which we believe capture the essence of life in Ireland today; Life, Belief, Place, People, Culture and Learning.

We hope you will enjoy the stories currently featured on our website and look forward to finding out What’s Your Storie!
