Calling all former Braun workers! Would you like to contribute your personal stories, photographs, artefacts or documents to the Braun Archive?

VISUAL Carlow and Carlow Arts Festival are building an archive documenting the social history of the former Braun building.

As part of Heritage Week 2021, we are inviting anyone who worked in Braun or had other strong connections to it to a coffee morning to share your stories and memorabilia. Our Curator of Learning, Clare Breen is gathering material related to the factory and building – if you have artefacts, photographs or memorabilia bring them along. Copies can be made if you would like to keep the originals.

It's a chance to share your memories of Braun and maybe catch up with some old work friends!

This event is free to attend but numbers will be limited based on Covid restrictions.
