Stories From a Living Graveyard
The ancient graveyard of Preban is set in an idyllic location in the southern foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. However until 2010 it was completely overgrown and largely inaccessible. When the local community set about restoring their graveyard they discovered remarkable personal histories of their ancestors.
In this seven part podcast series, I have teamed up with podcaster, historian and archaeologist, Damian Sheils to tell their stories.
In this series recorded at the cemetery in Preban you will hear about 1798 rebels, famine emigrants not to mention rock art that stretches back thousands of years. Tune in on Monday to find out more.
