Walking Birds’ Mountain I 


  • The Nest Lower Quay Street Sligo, County Sligo Ireland (map)

Walking Birds' Mountain took place last year over one week. A group of visual artists and writers trekked across the Ballygawley Mountains with archaeological writer and folklorist Pádraig Meehan, explorating Sliabh Dá Eán, the ‘hill of two birds’, which is rich in the mythic narratives of the Cailleach Bhérra. They then exhibited their visual, vocal and written responses to the experience for one night in The Factory Performance Space. Their work will be exhibited this year in The Nest for the duration of this year’s Tread Softly.
