Opening Reception: Saturday 29 September 2018 at 12pm. Reception with beer by Priory Brewery, Tallaght.

Between June 2017 and June 2018 over four hundred people helped to carry a granite boulder on foot from Tallaght, to build a cairn at the top of Glenasmole valley 12 kilometres away. The Rock to the Top challenge was a public art project by Ciarán Taylor, inspired by the feat of Oisín back from Tír na nÓg, who threw a boulder up the valley with one hand.

Each monthly walk featured a performance or event linked to the place and the seasons. This exhibition, with photography by Felipe Jóia, gives a flavour of the journeys over four seasons between the city and mountains. A short video of the project will be premiered at the launch.

Rock to the Top is commissioned under IN CONTEXT 4 – IN OUR TIME, South Dublin County Council’s Public Art Programme for 2016-2019 under the Per Cent for Art Scheme.
