The Peace Garden, Newtown Junior School, Waterford

2016

In 2016 I worked with the students and staff of Newtown Junior School, Waterford to create The Peace Garden in remembrance of all those who lost their lives to violence in Ireland during the Easter Rising of 1916.  We made over 100 white fabric poppies as a symbol of peace and pacifism. 

The project was documented by RTE and broadcast on News2Day on 9th March 2016.  The video can be watched below.
