Research Associates

These school resources were designed and put together by Catherine Swift, Lenore Fischer and Billy Mag Fhloinn. The film was created by Applebox Media on location in Co. Tipperary and at Craggaunowen Heritage Park, Co. Clare, to whom we are extremely grateful for their generosity in providing us with use of their facilities. Costumes and props were provided by Mogh Roith Living History Group. The actors involved were students and staff of Mary Immaculate College and we would like to express a particular word of thanks to our international students who proved such enthusiastic and inspirational members of the crew.

We would also like to thank our colleagues in the Education Faculty of Mary Immaculate College: Dr David O’Grady, Brendan Barry and Niamh Armstrong for their generous instruction on the mysteries of ICT, especially as it relates to primary schools and also Eileen O’Sullivan who equally kindly shared her expertise on the pedagogy of history teaching in the classroom.
