Our 1916 documents the day to day life in Youghal around the time of 1916 painting a picture of what life was like 100 years ago for our ancestors , including looking at the historical landscape , industry ,economy, living conditions  and political climate in the area at the time.

The programme will feature stories of individuals and families caught up in the Rising of 1916 and also those families who had members fighting abroad in the Great War at the same time and the conflict and turmoil that caused at the time within families.

With Contributions from local historians , the programme also captures stories from neighbouring villages such as Killeagh ,Tallow and Ardmore where we hear of heartbreaking and  poignant stories from locals caught up in the troubles in the 1916 to 1922 era.
