Poulnabrone Village
Adjacent to the Poulnabrone Dolmen
The Burren, Co. Clare
October 2008 – January 2009

A temporary public sculpture built in the manner of commercial signage located on protected land next to a 6,000 year old tomb, the Poulnabrone Dolmen. This fake housing development hoarding was vandalised several times and I received complaints from the Gardai, Clare County Planning, the OPW and there where surprisingly even some people interested in buying a unit.

This project was made possible with the support of the Clare County Council Arts Office, Ground Up Artists Collective and Tommy Byrnes. Special thanks to Chris Attenborough.
