This compilation is derived from a three-part recording entitled Following the Whitethorn.

The public art project was commissioned by Mayo County Council and funded by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government under the Percent for Art Scheme.

The work consists of three collections of folklore which were recorded between January 2008 and May 2009 in a variety of settings in and around the town of Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo. These range from people's home and private nursing homes to centres for older people.

To coincide with the recording process he presented a selection of preview screenings of the newly collected material throughout the county. The completed collection were screened in Ballinrobe on the 23rd of June (St. John’s Eve) 2009. A limited number of DVDs are available and requests for these can be made from the Arts Office of Mayo County Council.

Featured in these three collections are: Nancy Hackett, Evyleen Horan, Kathleen Murphy, Nora Connell, Margie Ferrick, Mary McConnell, Noreen Jennings, Mary Kelly, Margo O'Shee, Mary Vahey, Ann Kelly, Sal Durcan, Carmel Dolan, Walter Loughrey, Oliver Brown, Peggy Heneghan, Philly Costello, Bridie Treacy, Ellen Maughan, Michelle Cleary, Carmel Macken, Mary Callaghan, Maisie Kelleghan, Mary Maughan, Kathleen Carney, Nora Lally and Jim Lally (RIP).
