Abstract

The community hall in Mullaghbane village, Armagh was the setting for the launch of the Nerve Centre's and the Rural Development Council's (RDC) animation project. 'Rural Reanimation' has been funded under RDC's Peace II scheme which aims to foster creative opportunities around issues of cultural diversity in rural areas. The launch night (Thursday 13th November) was attended by a large crowd who saw for the first time this example of their children's creativity.The Mullabane project: 'A Townland Tale' uses animation and live footage of this isolated rural community to tell a local folklore tale set in the townland of Carricknagavna/Carraig Na nGamhna. This was part of a wider project also in association with RDC, which has fostered a sense of 'pride of place' among the community, alongside the placing of permanent stone markers denoting all of the townland names in the Parish of Forkhill.
