Stories from Stoneybatter
After a few months of workshops, storytelling, and sharing memories, we are now all set to launch our Stories of Stoneybatter, in partnership with An Siol, as part of the Stoneybatter festival. The stories come from the memories of some long-time residents of Stoneybatter – Deirdre and Tom were born there, and indeed still live in the family home. Others, like Ann and Kathleen, have come to Stoneybatter to retire, and have found a community and close friends. All our contributors meet every day around dinners cooked by An Siol team members.
The booklet contains contributions from Deirdre Freeman, Kathleen Hudson, Tom Kehoe, Ann Neary, Tom Power, Myles Ryan, Rita Stafford, with a foreword from Sr Peggy, who founded An Siol some twenty-five years ago.
