The Florrie to host The Big Dingle Reunion

This September, to celebrate The Florrie’s 135th birthday, they are planning a huge reunion party for everyone who has had a connection to The Dingle over the past century.

As part of the celebration, they are creating a new short film and exhibition celebrating the history of The Dingle and need your memories. But to make this happen, they need you to join in and share your stories and memories with them.

The Florrie to host The Big Dingle Reunion

• Did you or do you still live or work in The Dingle?

• Did you go to school here?

• Did you play for a local football team?

• Do you or your family members have stories, photos, artefacts, or home movies of your life in Dingle that you’d love to share?

• Maybe you’ve moved abroad & still fondly remember your upbringing as a Dingle-ite?

This is a celebration of our amazing area for people of all ages with any connection to The Dingle. They want to highlight and preserve the real lives of the community, from the seemingly mundane to the extraordinary stories hidden within.

Tony Caveney, fundraiser at The Florrie & Life long Dingle-ite said:

“Dingle means so much to so many. I can trace my family history in The Dingle back over three generations. At 54, I’m still here, and like many others, I hold a deep love for our area and feel a strong sense of protection over it. What better opportunity than now to preserve our history for future generations? We’re reaching out to both current Dingle residents and ex-pats, asking you to share your memorabilia and memories from Dingle’s past for this exhibition. This will be truly remarkable. As The Florrie celebrates its birthday, we’d be honoured to celebrate it alongside you, the people of Dingle.”

If you have any photos, videos, items, or stories that you think fit the bill and would be happy for them to be displayed, please email info@theflorrie.org.
