What makes StoryTracks special?

When my father passed away, so many great tales went with him. Such is the case, multiplied across the country, where stories lay dormant, gathering dust, perhaps lost to local memory forever.

Fergal Nealon

The telling of stories has always been integral to Irish life and it’s this rich vein of talent that Fergal Nealon’s, StoryTracks app aims to preserve. Collecting and recalling authentic stories of a locality can spawn that sense of belonging and connection for both native and visitor alike. In 2016, the Sligo man began researching the market and outlines below, his hopes and aspirations for StoryTracks, a new storytelling audio-guide. StoryTracks is now home to hundreds of stories. You can listen to Mary Flynn an old lady tell the first time she tasted ice-cream while on holidays as a child in the town of Castlerea, you can little to a story from Michael Quirke telling a folklore story of Queen Meabh on the hill of Knocknarea. 

You can meet the chefs (like Mabel Chah and Sahr Aruna James) of the Sligo Global Kitchen who live in Globe House direct provision centre and tell stories from their home countries.
