Iniskeagh North, situated off the Mullett Peninsula, North Mayo Coast, Ireland. The North Island along with the South Island were abandoned after most of the fisherman were drowned in the Storm of October 27th, 1927. The self supporting lifestyle of the Islanders was no longer viable, the last inhabitants were evacuated from the islands in 1932 .Traces of the lives lived, former homes and buildings now returning to the ground . Working title of this body of work “PORTAL”, looking through doors and windows of the now long departed occupants , the Islanders homes are being reclaimed by the North Atlantic. Sea, sand, wind and storms. After Lockdown and Covid prevented visiting, the time worn structures in 2021-22 seemed even more desolate and distant from their former occupants and the lives lived within their walls.
