Prompted by a reprinting of the original Nature Trail pamphlet of Glengarra Wood (courtesy of Galtee Honey Farm), a series of recorded interviews with older members of the community from the Galtee Vee Valley in April 2023 will be featured, alongside woodland drone footage and interviews of retired foresters and former hikers, as part of a short documentary film. Participants, on revisiting Glengarra Wood and Mountain Lodge on a Nature Trail will retrace their steps before a screening of this documentary. A new Nature Trail pamphlet for Glengarra Wood will be created with artist Deirdre Dunne.
New nature trail pamphlet will be available from Fri 26th May. See www.facebook.com/glengarralodge or www.instagram/glengarralodge to download.
This project is lead by both Joey Maguire and Aisling Fitzgerald. Joey Maguire is a multi-disciplinary artist, educator and live event technician. He performs as both a solo artist and as a member of Timpeall. Joey’s artistic work encourages the audience to connect with their inner-child, create a sense of immersion and engage the participant in a state of play with the piece. Aisling Fitzgerald is a Musician, Creative Producer and Lecturer and works predominately in Opera and Festival production. Her creative practice is channeled through the development of an arts and cultural programme at Glengarra Mountain Lodge where Aisling’s community-based and inter-generational artistic programming is inspired by heritage, both natural and architectural.
