More about the Museum of Mythological Water Beasts:
The Museum of Mythological Water Beasts is a multi-year project inspired by the River Shannon and the people of Limerick. Ormston began with an open research process, working with local catchment custodians – including artists, boat-builders, historians, and scientists – through a series of events, workshops and field trips about, along and
on the river. In 2018, they have returned indoors to develop a series of artistic commissions and exhibition-environments at Ormston House.

The Museum of Mythological Water Beasts is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland Visual Arts Project Award.
