SLIABH GEARR – GRANITE SCULPTURE SYMPOSIUM – 2009
I was lucky to be selected to attended the 1st Granite Sculpture Symposium over the Blackstairs Mountain at Niall Deacon’s granite yard in Killannn, Co. Wexford. The symposium was for the first 2 weeks in September and 9 sculptors attended; Cliona Cussen, Niall Deacon , Eileen MacDonagh, Padraig McGoran, Martha Quinn, Paul Haggins, Bojana Krizacec (from Slovenia), Emanuela Camacci (from Italy). We all had a great time and were very well looked after by Niall and Anne Deacon.
