Athbheochan/Renewal

The inspiration for the new installation outside Coláiste Feirste entitled “Athbheochan” (“renewal”) is the area’s previous life as the site of spinning mills, established in the 1800s to take advantage of local rivers (Forbairt Feirste). The Bog Meadows nature reserve down beside the M1 is the only part of the Blackstaff’s flood plain that remains in an undeveloped state.

The launch was on August 11th during Féile by Mairtín Ó Muilleoir, but the piece is also part of Irish-language festival Liú Lúnasa (tw | web) which is going on this week. Artist Aodán Monaghan can be seen on the left in the final image of kids climbing all over the artwork.
