Digital Stories

Digital Stories from West Offaly

In June 2010 Offaly County Council Heritage Office, Lough Boora Parklands and Brown University teamed up to record aspects of West Offaly’s heritage. The American students were based in West Offaly for 10 days and recorded their interpretation of aspects of Offaly’s heritage including the industrial heritage of the peatlands, Belmont Mills and the monastic sites.  This project was funded by the Heritage Council and Offaly County Council.  The videos can be viewed on the Offaly Heritage YouTube Channel. 

Brandon Ballengee and the Love Motel for Insects

In the summer of 2010, Brandon Ballengee, international environmental artist, came to Offaly to install a temporary sculpture called the Love Motel for Insects. This is a really interesting and engaging way of attracting new audiences to see the activities of insects through art. View the Youtube interview with Brandon Ballengee here.
