Test Site

Sawmill – Site Visit

Images are from site exploration of the old sawmill on Kyrls Quay. Far from a ruin, materials holding strong.

Film

The ‘Mná & Sons’ film is easiest described as a 16mm experimental documentary about a place; the collection of derelict sites at Kryl’s Quay. Why make this film? How did the film start? How will it start? What is it about? Perhaps it started long before I can consciously remember, perhaps like many others I went as a child to the R.H. Parker & Sons timber yard with my father to get some wood.

Coill Bheag Planting Installation Day

Ní neart go chur le chéile! Yesterday a lot of hard graft went into installing An Choill Bheag at TEST SITE.

Walking Tours

That’s a wrap for TEST SITE Walking Tours. The last tour took place on Saturday and we want to thank all the speakers and attendees who took part. The walks included local heritage, herbalism, archaeology, urban planning, ecology and social art: all invaluable strands for interpreting, inhabiting and reimagining our city. They were guided by some very knowledgeable and generous people. Míle buíochas to Colin Rynne, Jo Goodyear, Elena Turk, Brendan O’Sullivan, Eoin Lettice and PLoT.
