Ó Iochtar Mara

The connection between city and sea has inspired artists for generations. For Ó Íochtar Mara, we borrow our title from a line in Caitlin Maude's love poem Aimhreadh “I speak to you every night from ocean's floor”. In a city by the sea, we bring together four very distinctive artists – poets Louis de Paor and Doireann Ní Ghríofa, performance artist and singer Ceara Conway and musician Caoimhin Ó Raghaille. Each interprets the many ways in which we are shaped and influenced by the natural world all around us, in particular by the sea, our constant companion, perched aswe are on the edge of the Irish Sea. 

Tá an cónasc idir an chathair agus an mhuir ag spreagadh ealaíontóirí leis na cianta. Don léiriú ‘Ó Íochtar Mara’ glacaimid ár dteideal ó líne i ndán gráde chuid Chaitlín Maude – Aimhréidh 
 “I speak to you each night from ocean's floor” 

I gcathair cois farraige tugaimid le chéile ceathrar ealaíontóir ar leith – na filí Louis de Paor agus Doireann Ní Ghríofa, an taibhealaíontóir agus an tamhránaí Ceara Conway agus an ceoltóir Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Baineann gach aon duine acu cila as na bealaí sin ina mhúnlaítear sinn agus ar an mbealach go dtéann an domhain nádúrtha i gcion orainn, go háirithe toisc an fharraige a bheith mar chompánach buansheasmhach againn, neadaithemar atáimid ar fhiacail Mara Éireann.
