The Nore Folk Museum will feature on this month’s Kilkenny Matters programme on Irish TV, which describes itself as “Ireland’s international TV connecting the Irish at home and abroad”.

Seamus was interviewed by a reporter from the Channel, and was delighted with the opportunity to highlight the more than 12,000 exhibits at the museum, located in Bennettsbridge.

He enthused “I get visitors from all over the world and I appreciate this chance to reach an international audience.”

No sooner had the Irish TV reporter and cameraman left the museum grounds when a busload of callers arrived from Dublin to savour the unique collection that has been decades in the making. The group comprised members of the Malahide Active Retirement Association, including one hundred year old Audrey Gilbert.

Ms. Gilbert said of the exhibits “they remind me of my long stay on this earth, truly a time capsule that takes you back over the years...the first vacuum cleaner, the old dairy, the blacksmith’s forge, and the moonshine making apparatus. I’ve never seen a museum like it. Amazing!”

The Irish TV interview with Seamus will be broadcast later this month and can be viewed anytime afterwards on the Channel’s website.
