Out on the Land: From Skibbereen to Killala

by JaneFairburn on May 4, 2018

I’ve had the pleasure of being in Ireland the last little while, exploring the theme of cultural memory.

I’m interested in how remembrance in the Irish and Ireland’s diaspora is tied to the land, and how it animates and informs identity and a mystical spirit of place.

I thought I’d share a little of what I found with you here, in image.

A million thank yous to Cait and the entire wonderful Murray family in Dublin — you’re an integral part of my journey. Many thanks also to Economist and Fellow of Trinity College, Dublin, Sean Barrett, and to Patrick Keane and Anita Gibney, who made me very welcome in County Down. Finally to Jennifer Byrne — thank you for those magical days in Glandore.
