The History of Repair in Westmeath

On 18th August 2022 Robin Ferguson gave a presentation in Mullingar Library on the history of repair in Co. Westmeath, as uncovered from historic documents. The talk was delivered as part of the Repair Acts Project that is currently underway. The project has been and will be working with local communities, repair enthusiast and experts, DIY hobbyists and passionate amateurs to build the people’s online photo archive of everyday repaired objects. Documenting and mapping how we used to repair things, with our “Right to Repair”, the project will create Ireland’s first “Repair Declaration” and speculate on future directions, it will also be creating a series of new art works and site-based installation.
