This short film shares birthplace stories and memories gathered from people born in Co. Clare and/or who have had children while living in Co. Clare, c.1930 to 2000.  Martina Hynan, maternal artist, curator and birth activist, has gathered multigenerational stories in which people recount what they know about where they were born, or where their children were born.

This work is part of Martina’s PhD research which explores our changing relationship with birthplace over time.  As well as gathering these stories, the local history and folklore group, Cuimhneamh an Chláir (Clare Memories) has a rich archive of birthplace stories which she is exploring.  The short films and artworks that she is currently working on are a response to these wonderful birthplace stories.
