This strand of the project was developed by Michael Fortune as part of a socially engaged project conducted in Kilmuckridge in 2015 in conjunction with Kilmuckridge Tidy Towns and a variety of youth groups and individuals. 

The place-based project has been supported by Wexford County Council as part of their ‘Artist in the Community Scheme’ and features comprehensive information Between June and November 2015 Michael was embedded in the village, meeting people individually and in small groups to conduct research, conversations and physical excursions to create a cultural map of the village’s rich social history. Featured on this map are disused mass paths, holy wells, raheens, pre-christian sites, local place-names, sites of recreation as well as information on the village’s lesser known connection to the Irish of Argentina.  

To coincide with this, the website will feature a downloadable copy of the out of print publication by local author and craftsman, Ned Kavanagh, ‘Poems, Folklore, History and Piseoga of Old Éireann’. Ned, along with some local men, have also completed the restoration of the original Morriscastle Rocket Cart, which will also be presented back to its owners as part of the launch. To coincide with the launch, Michael and some local people decided to unveil a memorial stone to those lost in the Tinnaberna fishing disaster, which happened exactly 200 years to the day, on the 14th of November 1815.
