In The Lands of Mythology


Tir Na Nóg means "Land of the Young/Youth" In Irish mythology and folklore it is one of the names for the Celtic Otherworld. Tír na nóg is best known from the tale of Oisín and Niamh. In the tale, Oisín (a human hero) and Niamh (a woman of the Otherworld) fall in love. She brings him to Tír na nóg on a magical horse that can travel over water. After spending what seems to be three years there, Oisín becomes homesick and wants to return to Ireland. When he does he finds 300 years have passed and he ages rapidly and dies.


Who knows the way to Tir Na Nóg and what it looks like?


Still in the theme of landscape, The way to Tir Na Nóg incorporates a multitude of different media. There is some collagraph, some ink and paper manipulation and beads sewn on like a pot of gold hidden away at the end of a path in the mossy hills.
