In 2003, I was in my third year in college in the Dublin Institute of Technology, studying Communications: Film and Broadcasting. One of our modules was Documentary. Myself and three of my friends decided to do our documentary on what “Now” meant for two women living in Dublin. One of whom was my grandmother, Maura (Ja) Cooney.

Last year, when Ja died, I dug out the VHS copy I had, thankfully, kept of our doc and had it converted to a .mov file. As you can see it is pretty rough quality and the length of the documentary  doesn’t allow for too many insights. But I’m so happy to have it. It’s a wonderful snapshot of a certain time in Ja’s life and I have lovelies memories of making it with my friends.
