Exhibition: Wild Ireland Carsten Krieger
In Wild Ireland (The O’Brien Press) author and photographer Carsten Krieger takes us on a journey across Ireland to explore the nature we pass by every day, and that which is buried deep in the bog, high in the mountains and under crashing waves. Discover alpine flowers blooming in the Burren, meet ferocious anemones on our shorelines, and visit the Shannon Dolphins, who have had a place in local legend for centuries. Fly with our ocean birds and experience their ever-more challenging search for food. Hear the dawn chorus in Killarney, surrounded by giant, ancient oaks, and look closely at our hedgerows, home to countless plants and animals.
An exhibition of works from this book will be on display at our Festival Hub at The Printworks, Dublin Castle, across the weekend of Saturday November 11th and Sunday 12th. Accessible on Saturday from 10am – 5pm and on Sunday from 11am – 4pm.
