A Bird in the House - featured on RTÉ Culture

RTÉ Culture has featured Michael Fortune's project with the Travelling community in Ballyogan and Southside Travellers Action Group, 'A Bird in the House, God Bless her'. Last September, Michael began working with members of our local Travelling community and they shared a wealth of folklore and customs. Michael captured all these on video and the collection is very special containing ancient and contemporary folklore.

This project is part of EXIT 15 a partnership programme between Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and Voluntary Arts Ireland working with people and organisations living, working and based in the Ballyogan area. EXIT 15 is funded under the Arts Council's Invitation to Collaboration Schene 2017 and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
