A peace and reconciliation project headquartered in Monaghan wants to create an archive to document the experience of people living along the border during the Troubles.

The Border Roads to Memories and Reconciliation Project facilitates a forum for residents, communities and victims to recollect and share their experiences as a direct result of border road closures.

A spokesperson explained: “We are interested in border residents who would be willing to record an interview about their experiences on video, audio or have their story transcribed. We are also looking for any photographs, newspaper articles or video footage relating to the border road closures.”

If you have anything you would like to contribute to the project, please contact Ciara on 00353429742003, or email ciaraking@borderroadmemories.com

The Border Roads to Memories and Reconciliation project’s aim is to safeguard the narrative of this period of the Troubles and create a knowledge-based legacy of this part of our history. The project is being run by Latton Social Services and Development Ltd and is funded by the EU’s PEACE III Programme.
