In 2020 Gael Linn and An tUltach partnered with the Liverpool Irish Festival to create a one-off creative commission to celebrate Irish language and folklore.
Selected for this commission, was storyteller and artist Nuala Monaghan.
The resulting work tells five key stories from Irish myth and legend, each with an artwork to help communicate the power of the story. Shown first at The Reader in Calderstones Park, we used the exhibition to connect Liverpool with Ireland through thousands of years of use and symbolism, this exhibit helps to reveal the connections folklore continues to have on our modern world. Now on display with St Helens Libraries, we hope to spread the connection in to the region.
Available during Library opening hours across the Festival and throughout Nov, St Helen’s Library at Heart of Glass. Free, just turn up.
This exhibition was co-commissioned with Gael Linn and An tUltach. Gael Linn is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation focused on the promotion of the Irish language and the arts. An tUltach is Ireland’s oldest Irish language literary magazine, established in 1924.
This event is held in partnership with St Helens Libraries, who have received funded support from Arts Council England.
