Roscommon stories from along the River Shannon

Use the QR code or the link to access a film specially commissioned for Culture Night 17th September 2021 from artists Susan Mannion, Rory Pierce, Matthew Gammon and Conor Horgan.

This Decade of Centenaries 1921-2021 commissioned film and accompanying sculpture mark the second in a series of artistic commissions from artists to reflect on the development of County Roscommon since the struggle for independence.

Artist Susan Mannion was awarded the 2021 commission for her proposal to create a sculpture and a film. The river and associated stories provide the basis for an artistic interpretation of the development of the nation since 1921 linking to specific points along the River Shannon basin in County Roscommon. The QR code will be available at 22 locations along the Shannon and Boyle Rivers on Culture Night, displayed on posters at bridging points and in libraries.

The sculpture created by Susan Mannion will be on display at King House, Boyle, on Culture Night, Friday 17th September 2021.

Funded by Roscommon County Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, under the Community Strand of the Decade of Centenaries programme for Culture Night 2021.
