Clare's area of expertise is local history and genealogy and in-class activities range from tracing your Irish ancestors, story-telling and making family trees, learning about local traditions and folklore and understanding aspects of the local landscape.
Recent projects have included 'My Cumann na mBan' creating a unique archive about local women in a Co. Clare parish involved in the Women's Council, and the collection of memories relating to Ballinasloe Horse Fair for the upcoming 300th anniversary of the Fair's establishment.
