Parklife - A visual art exhibition, Dublin

Parklife is a temporary exhibition of visual art set in the unique environment of St. Anne's Park in Raheny, Dublin. Six contemporary visual artists, Aideen Barry, Carl Giffney, Niamh Jackman, John Jones, Maria McKinney and Beth O'Halloran, were invited to respond to the landscape of St Anne's Park, its vast acreage, its wild and not so wild life, and its treasured history.

One of the artists, Beth O'Halloran's The Common, has created a series of soft textile sculptures of various birds and wildlife indigenous to St. Anne's park. You can view her work here
