It’ll be another socially distanced St. Patrick’s Day this year.
But one city group is busy working on a unique art project designed to bring people together (remotely) to celebrate our national holiday.
Inspired by the legend of the Goddess Clíodhna, patron of Cork, and her three otherworldly healing songbirds, Cork Community Art Link is creating a large scale installation that will be displayed in the city centre.
The piece will contain a soundtrack made of contributions collected from the people of Cork, which will also be available online.
“Clíodhna’s songbirds need voices – do you want to get involved?” ask the organisers.
“We are asking for voice note submissions of you reading a poem you wrote or a poem you love. All languages are very welcome.”
