Taghmon and Surrounding Area
This strand of the project was developed by Michael Fortune in Taghmon, Co. Wexford in 2015 in conjunction with Taghmon Family Resource Centre and a variety of local individuals and groups including Taghmon Amenity Group, Taghmon Historical Society and Taghmon Men’s Shed.
The place-based project has been funded and supported by Wexford County Council as part of their ‘Artist in the Community Scheme’ and features comprehensive information on sites of historical and cultural importance around the village of Taghmon, Co. Wexford.
Between June and October 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 holy wells and churches, raheens, pre-christian sites of worship, sites of recreation and sites of industry among other things.
Also featured with this project is a body of folklore collected on film by Michael from some of the people who assisted with research. These include Nuala Carroll, May Buttimer, Eddie Waters, Henry Bateman, Mick Doyle and Jim Morris. Please note most of these sites are private land so please seek landowners permission before entering onto their property. Map researched and designed by Michael Fortune, 2015.
