A collaborative and public discussion on the importance of the basin of the River Suir
This six-day collaborative research project between Deirdre O’Mahony and the South Tipperary Rural Arts Group led to an installation and a film to animate a discussion about the social, cultural and ecological importance of the basin of the River Suir. The project served as a locus for discussion between visiting groups, local artists and volunteer groups during a weekend festival and archival installation of hunting and fishing tools and materials alongside objects from Tipperary Museum in Clonmel, selected and curated by participants.
Deirdre recorded interviews that reiterated concerns heard in other landscapes, of a persistent disregard by State departments of tacit, place-based knowledge.
