Cill Rialaig Artists Retreat

Am recently back from a residency at the wonderful Cill Rialaig artist village, near Ballinskelligs, County Kerry. What a place to switch off from the usual pulls and distractions of an everyday hectic life. 8 cottages perched on the side of a hill, the cliffs falling down into the sea. Perfect. There is a nearby Arts Centre, a great little hub of activity and a striking building in it's own right. If you are ever heading that way it's worth calling in, just a few miles off the Ring of Kerry between Caherciveen and Waterville. Here's the link to keep ... Read more

The sun-dial mosaic beside the market house in Scariff has got off to a good start. I have been working on it with some children from the town.We have braved the cold, the wind and the wet with enthusiasm and dedication, though I think the winter weather may have stopped us for now! So much rain... It is already turning into a lovely feature for Scariff, even in it's unfinished state. We've had great support from Clare Arts office towards materials, and the lads from the Tus scheme built the sun-dial stand, and lots of encouragement from passers by. It's ... Read more
