IRELAND PORTRAYED

In a four-part series for RTÉ Lyric, art critic Cristín Leach brings us through a story of conquest, propaganda and inspiration as she explores how ideas of Ireland and Irish national identity have been visually represented.

Joined by leading art historians, curators and artists on urban streets, in rural heartlands and galleries, Cristín excavates identity in some of Ireland’s iconic historical and political artworks.

IN THE WIND

We were once a culture that paid close attention to the natural world, the landscapes we lived in and the wild life we lived alongside. And we fixed that attention and knowledge into the words we spoke. But what happened when we stopped paying attention?

Written and presented by Mary Brophy, this radio hour explores how our diminishing language for the natural world coincides with a dramatic vanishing of nature itself.
