Cork Folklore Projects' LGBT Archive Collection Part of Exhibition Celebrating LGBT History
At the Cork Folklore Project, we often get enquiries from primary and secondary school students regarding local and oral history. We’re delighted to present a report from Ciara Donoghue, who took part in the Discover Cork: Schools’ Heritage Project 2015/16, and whose team were awarded first place in the Cork City Leaving Certificate Group for their work on the Sunbeam textile company. We have a number of interviews with former Sunbeam workers, which were drawn upon and augmented in recent years by historian Liam Cullinane in his work on labour history.
Available to stream now here.

Here is a collection of photo's from the night taken by Billy MacGill.
