The Heart of Wexford

Recorded and Produced by Michael Fortune, 2015.


The Heart of Wexford is a new collection of folklore recorded by Michael from 1st and 2nd Year Pupils from Coláiste Abbain in Adamstown, Co. Wexford between April and May 2015. These stories, many ancient in their origins, combined with contemporary references and the storyteller's own character, highlight the incredibly rich oral history which still exists in County Wexford to this day. 

The collection is broken up into the interviews with each pair of pupils, so naturally some are longer than others. Michael has produced a once-off compilation for the the official website launch which takes place in the school on the 25th of May 2015 and to can be seen below.
