The Oral History Network of Ireland brings together oral history practitioners (individuals, local history groups and academics) for the support and promotion of the discipline of oral history in Ireland.
Our aims include offering advice and support, encouraging new and existing projects to allow oral historians to communicate on a national level, sharing experiences and ideas, and discussing standards in practice and relevant technologies. We wish to provide information about the creation, management, and preservation of oral history collections.
We engage with our members and members of the public through our website, social media pages and through a busy calendar of events nationwide including networking events, training, lectures, and our annual conference. Through these we work to address issues relating to oral history, on a local and national level, and interact with oral historians and groups internationally.
