Students from Coláiste Feirste took part in a Forbairt Feirste (Fb) “pop-up art” project, designing plastic wrap for the installation of blocks at the old entrance to Beechmount leisure centre (see the wide shot immediately below). Taking its lead from a Ciarán Carson poem, the design features “a million wind-blown buttercups”, as well as the front page of Edward O’Reilly’s English-Irish dictionary (image #4, below). The piece was officially opened by Caral Ní Chuilín during Féile An Phobail.
