Press Release – 365 Project

One Small Village, One Big Project

Villagers in Lisacul, Co. Roscommon are preparing to take part in Ireland’s first 365 Project, taking photographs around their townlands every day for one year from 1st February 2016.

The photos will capture a year in the life of Lisacul through the eyes of the people who live there and the people who visit this small rural community.

Peter McDonagh, Chairman of Lisacul’s Community Development Company, said “One of the aims of the project is to discover the overlooked gems in Lisacul, the everyday things we take for granted but that people outside the village might enjoy.  And we’re hoping our friends and relatives abroad will enjoy seeing what we’re up to throughout the year.”

Likely subjects of the 365 Project will be annual community events, such as the play in spring, the Tea Party in autumn and the Village Party in December, as well as depictions of the farming year: calving, lambing, haymaking, and harvest.
