Some images of lockdown stories shared by readers of the Chronicle

Council seeking to capture snapshot of local life under lockdown

The unprecedented times we are living in will be documented for posterity in an initiative taken by Meath Co Council.

Meath Co Council’s Library Section, Climate Action Office and Tourism Section are collaborating on an exciting project and they need your help.

“We want to create a snapshot in time of our wonderful county and how we are all in this together,” says Climate Action Officer, Caroline Corrigan.

She explains they are looking to document Covid-19 life through photos, pictures and the written word.

“This can be how you now go about your daily business, your hobbies, what you are eating, how you are keeping fit. We are also interested in how you are connecting with nature and biodiversity, or if you are seeing your 2km and 5km in a new light, maybe getting to know the history of your area better? It is your experience, your story, your record of these times.

“We do have some rules, you must maintain social distancing at all times and stay within your 5km radius from home. Additionally, if you are photographing nature then please do not take photos that may disturb it, such as nesting birds or chicks.”

“We are in unprecedented times, our world as we know it has changed, it has grown smaller but has made us stronger and more resilient. We have come together, in solidarity, to protect those most vulnerable and to keep everyone safe. We are in this together.

“In the future we can look back and reflect on this time, what we have learned about ourselves and everything that is worth remembering. Together, we want to document the Covid experience for future researchers and to archive this pivotal moment in time.”
