In 2013, the people of Lisacul came together to produce a book to record every person who had lived in the parish in 1913, using the records of the 1911 census and the memories and stories of locals. With the addition of articles and photographs charting the course of life and activity in Lisacul over the past century, the final product is so much more than the sum of its parts.
We’ve had a lovely email in from a lady in New York about The Gathering: here’s a snippet.
The book is incredibly well done. … I can’t imagine any community topping what you all have done. You have made a community come alive on paper.
