Preban - Stories From A Living Graveyard Podcast Series for Heritage Week
Older graveyards are treasure troves of history, genealogy, archaeology, arts and crafts, traditions and folklore of a locality. Nowhere is this more true than at Preban, near Annacurra in south county Wicklow. For Heritage Week 2020 we present a seven part podcast highlighting the stories of, and community engagement with, Preban Graveyard, Co. Wicklow. Click on the audio link to listen to the introductory podcast. Commencing on Monday 17th August, a new podcast will be released daily, visit The Irish History Podcast to access.
Funding has been provided by The Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council and The Heritage Council, under the County Heritage Plan to present and animate the rich heritage of this site via these podcasts. The podcast series is a collaboration between Ireland’s leading historical podcaster, Fin Dwyer (Irish History Podcast), public heritage specialist Damian Shiels (Shiels Heritage), and Wicklow archaeologist Yvonne Whitty (De Faoite Archaeology). Each podcast covers different aspects of the graveyard’s past and present, incorporating both narrative elements and interviews conducted within the community.
