Threading the Táin: An inter-county community visual arts project showcasing five tapestries created in celebration of the Táin Bó Cúailnge.

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Funded by Creative Ireland and produced by An Táin Arts Centre in association with Creative Spark, five intricate tapestries depicting scenes from the great Irish epic, Táin Bó Cúailnge, will be exhibited at An Táin Arts Centre from April 23rd. Each tapestry depicts scenes from the revered ancient epic that relate to the five counties mentioned in the Táin – Roscommon, Longford, Westmeath, Meath and Louth. When displayed together, the five tapestries portray the overall story of the Táin, while each piece also stands alone as an individual artwork. Christa de Brún is one of five poets commissioned by the Arts Council to create a poetic response to the tapestries and will be representing the tapestry of Westmeath.
