The Generation Game Project

August 4 - August 22

Heritage Week 2021
The Generation Game Project
Join Bernie Walsh, genealogist with Carlow County Library Service, for an intergenerational, fun project. We’re looking for children between the age of 8 – 12, and an older family member (grandparent, aunt or uncle for example) to join together and participate in our Generation Game Project, as part of Carlow’s Heritage Week 2021 programme.

A short list of questions is provided for the child to ask their older relation, who in turn will give them as much information as possible about their childhood. Together, they compile their project based on this information, which can include a short family story, photos, illustrations and so on. We also ask that each child draws a picture or makes a collage to illustrate their favourite answer, for display in the library and on our Social Media pages.

During Heritage Week, Bernie will host an online session where each pair can talk about their stories and share their experience with the other participants. Certificates will be awarded, the project will be promoted on the National Heritage Week website and be considered for the National Heritage Week Awards 2021.

National Heritage Week 2021 takes place from the 4th to 22nd August
