Official Opening by Ms Dee Forbes, Director General of RTE.

West Cork Artists Geraldine O’Sullivan presents a collection of 25 artworks, 11 multi-layered collages and 14 paintings based on oral histories, archive material and photographs capturing the unique lifestyle of Lighthouse keepers on Ireland’s coastline and territorial waters. The Lifescapes portray the personal and subjective narratives of this diminishing community and the raw and isolated scape that was home to these ‘keepers’.
