From 2021 to 2022, the Droichead Arts Centre, Drogheda Port and Meath County Arts Office collaborated with the project to offer five artists the site of Mornington, County Meath. Mornington is home to three lights (the North, West and East lights) along with the additional architecture of: Lady’s Finger, the Maiden’s Tower and the ancient beacons where fires were originally lit before the presence of lighthouses.
Artists SJ Mc Ardle, Jackie Hudson Lalor, Jessica Traynor, Laura Sheeran and Róisín Ward Morrow have created an audio experience mirroring the landscape and the tales surrounding it with original poems, songs and music. Maps with project information are around the local area and are also available from Droichead Arts Centre, Drogheda. The audio trail can be accessed using this link: Mornington Audio Trail on a smart device with headphones or earphones.
