This is a lovely way to fill an hour on Sunday.
A local writer will lead participants on a Haiku Hike through Tramore Valley Park on June 26th.
Pitched as an opportunity to “reflect on the impact of human activity through the usage of space”, the walk will be led by young Irish writer, poet, and narrator Jake MM Griffin.

It’s all part of ‘KinShip’, a long-term public art initiative based in the 170-acre former landfill site.
The Haiku Hike will take place from 2pm to 3.30pm at the park. Tickets are free but you must register for the event via Eventbrite here.
A park soundscape
In the meantime, artist Jesse James Hallaway has completed his Kinship residency by composing a soundscape using various data gathered from within Tramore Valley Park.
Jesse has taken audio recordings alongside electronic capacitive readings of the plant life to create “a collaborative composition not about nature, but with it”.
You can listen to the composition here.
