Caoineadh Dúlra is a groundbreaking series of events, in conjunction with artist AlanJames Burns’s ambitious theatrical project The Waking Walls (8th & 9th September 2023).
The iconic national monument of Cloughoughter Castle sitting on its tiny island in the heart of Cavan’s lakelands now premieres a collaborative, theatrical artwork The Waking Walls. A wholly distinct experience that uniquely draws upon the Irish traditions of lamenting and caoineadh/ keening to express emotions of ecological and climate grief felt due to lost heritage and ecology associated with climate change.
