A series of five podcasts on Monaghan heritage places and people is due to be released, one per week, from mid-March. Accompanied with specially commissioned music by distinguished Monaghan composer Michael Gallen, the series features Sliabh Beagh, Mullyash Cairn, The Tin Church in Laragh, Donagh Old graveyard and the Black Pigs Dyke. The programmes were produced by the Heritage Office and recorded onsite by Noel Murphy of Northern Sound. They present interviews with local people, custodians, and heritage specialists, with lots of lively discussions and stories about the places and their value to the community. Each podcast is about 15 minutes in length.
The series was funded by Monaghan County Council and the Heritage Council as part of the implementation of the County Monaghan Heritage Plan and the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
The series will be available here upon release.
