From the Well

Images by Claire O’Rorke

From the Well is an artistic response the holywells of the Burren. Drawing inspiration from days trudging across the hills armed with microphones and cameras, in search of stories and ideas. The school records on National Archives was also a hugely useful and inspiring resource with fascinating stories about the wells (ranging from hilarious to poetic) dating from the early part of the 20th century. This is not a history lesson, it is a work inspired by these explorations.

This project is the second of three collaborations under the Arts Council of Ireland Music Bursary Award. Supported by Clare Arts Office and the Burren College of Art.

No.2 Pery Square

Scenes from No 2 Pery Square by Fiona Linnane was produced by Opera Workshop in association with production partners, Honest Arts.   This research and development project, was funded by the Arts Council of Ireland and the Limerick City & County Council Arts Office with support from Limerick Civic Trust, the Irish Chamber Orchestra and Lyric FM.

Songs of the Meteorologist

The Songs of a Meteorologist were sparked into life by soprano Roisin Walsh who was confused by the naming system of storms and hurricanes. Leaving long phone messages to composer Fiona Linnane on the subject, Fiona’s response was Stormy Weather, which hasn’t helped Roisin’s understanding of the naming system.

Filmed in October 2020 at the iconic Shannon Rowing Club, Limerick, these films were made possible through funding from Creative Ireland and Limerick City and County Council Arts Office.
