Tyneside Irish Brigade
Recruiting volunteers for a “memories” project
The Tyneside Irish Cultural Society is currently recruiting volunteers for a
one-year project Io launch in April 2021. We are looking for descendants of members of the Tyneside Irish Brigade to share their memories with us. The project will use the memories, photographs and memorabilia relating to the lives of Brigade members to create an exhibition and accompanying booklet to tour the North East of England during 2021.
The exhibition will travel to a variety of smaller more isolated communities across the North East reaching diverse audiences with an identifiable Irish heritage.
If you think you might be interested and would like to join our group of volunteers to develop your skills in either family history research and war records research or writing and compiling a booklet or helping to design the exhibition please get in touch via the contact details below.
