Working in the Barking Angels Letterpress studio to set the type and print for the English-language version of my poem ‘What Matter’. Many thanks to Scott Coombs and Orla Parkinson for their help, advice, keen eyes and wealth of experience.

This work is part of my exhibition ‘What Matter / Cén t-údar’ at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, which opens on Friday 24th June. I’ll be posting details of the exhibition times etc later today.

Have finished carving my poem, ‘What Matter/ Cén t-údar’. Many thanks to Jackie Mc Kenna and Seamus Dunbar for their help and stone carving expertise, and to Caoimhín Ó Súilleabháin for his beautiful translation. Next stage will be to create the metal mounting posts and start to assemble the poem as an installation. My exhibition at Leitrim Sculpture Centre opens on 24th June. More information to follow soon.

Carving poem ‘What Matter/ Cén t-udar” into locally-sourced found limestone. The stone is very variable in makeup – some pieces are very hard, some crumbly and several have split while I’ve been carving them. It’s taking a long time, but I’m persevering…

This will form part of my exhibition at the end of my residency at Leitrim Sculpture Centre Manorhamilton. Exhibition opens on 24th June. More information and photos to follow…
