HERE IN IRELAND remnants of past civilisations stand defiantly along the roadside or lie directly underfoot on trails connecting small towns. We need to start telling stories about these historical things and offer them directly into the earbuds and playlists of people who appreciate stories of rich cultures. At Tipperary Institute, we're looking at ways of leading tourists along isochronal lines (i.e., showing visitors remnants from the same decade) because it's fascinating to rewind time while walking the land. Ireland is blessed with these lovely stories such as the ones we recorded with Labhaoise McKenna from the South Tipperary Heritage Office and next semester we will unveil dozens more on iTunes and YouTube.
