At 9am today:

Orkney based artist Sheena Graham George presents ‘Requiescat for the Mothers in the Cillín.’

Requiescat goes in search of traces of the almost forgotten mothers who died in childbirth and were buried alongside other adults such as suicides, strangers, shipwrecked sailors, murderers and their unfortunate victims, criminals, famine victims andthose with learning disabilities in the cillíní, the un-baptised children’s burial grounds found throughout Ireland.      

This intimate sound-work weaves together voices from the local community in Dingle & Iveragh, County Kerry, field-recordings, the artists own memories and specially composed music by Anne Wood to explore memory, motherhood, birth, death and the cillín.
