Glór na Móna are based in the Upper Springfield area, one of the most deprived socio-economic wards in the north of Ireland. Their project is a community empowerment project designed to instil a pride of place in the local area. They aim to survey the area comprehensively to find out the core issues and audit the skills base/or lack of in parallel to having conducted a ground-breaking, participatory oral history project which charts the history and narrative of the area and its people. This will involve a unique methodology with young people from our youth project interviewing those over 50, and to utilise the Irish language and their native area to re-establish hope, self-worth and well- being amongst local people.
