If the Stones Could Speak (2015) is the second film in a series, produced by the Cork Folklore Project, featuring buildings of heritage significance that have participated in Cork Heritage Open Day. This film by Mark Wilkins continues to explore the relationship between some of Cork’s most historic buildings and the people who use them. The first film, If the Walls Could Talk, was produced in 2013.
Commissioned by Cork City Heritage Officer Niamh Twomey, these films were funded by Cork City Council and the Heritage Council as part of Heritage Week celebrations. Interviews conducted for use in these films are from The Cork Folklore Project’s Built Heritage Collection.
