Site Specific work
The Ark Children's Cultural centre
a Green edge project
Greening of the Ark building during the Children's festival 'Crinniú nÓg', included designing and building a new garden and connecting the existing roof top garden with the ground floor garden visually.
The Rainbow made from multiple fibre cords, connected the building from top to bottom as well as signalling the centre's ethos of inclusivity. The rainbow idea came from one of the children participating in preparatory workshops on Greening the Ark during the birds in the city project.
Gaelscoil Lios na nÓg Ranelagh Dublin 6.
In commemoration of 20th anniversary of the founding of Lios na nÓg school Oakley Road in Ranelagh the school board commissioned Róisín to design and make a glass window for the new wing of the school building.
Established in Cullenswood House which was the site of the first Irish language school Scoil Éanna, established by Pádraig Pearse, the board requested that the artist consider the context, history and celebration of this historic site. Róisín collaborated with the children of the school in workshops developing ideas and content for the work as part of the 1916 celebrations and in collaboration with the Design and Crafts Council CraftEd project.
