Derrynaflan is an island of high ground situated in the extensive bog of Littleton, Co. Tipperary. It is the site of an ancient monastic settlement known locally as ‘the Gobán Saor’. The famous Derrynaflan Hoard: a chalice and paten along with other medieval ecclesiastical treasures were discovered there in 1980.
This is a collaborative project between Print Van Go travelling print studio, organised by local artists, Aoife Barrett, Cáit Ní Riain and Tim Davis with TFI Local Link Tipperary bus service as well as local community and hillwalking groups.
