Throughout our range of videos we capture Irish country life as it was during the 20th century when farming was a part of everyday life. Our videos cover traditional farming in Ireland when the horse was the sole source of power and little changed from one generation to the next.
The changes in Irish farming brought about by the arrival of the tractor and mechanized machinery onto the farming scene is well documented in our videos, which are filled with traditional crafts and skills that are sadly are no longer in use.
Through our videos aim to help keep these memories alive, showing the younger generation what life was like during these years and we hope to rekindle fond memories of those who lived through these times in rural Ireland.
