Artist Fergal McCarthy has been travelling the length and breath of our isle with his Red Flag project. A site-specific public art commission by the Project Arts Centre, he has been literally planting red flags to draw awareness out climate crisis. From Bull Wall to Ballybunion, they serve to draw attention to locations at the coalface of change whether it is the threat of flooding, the loss of ancient forests, sea pollution, the illegal extraction of peat or the operation of data centres which use up 18% of our electricity. McCarthy’s previous illuminating work includes Liffeytown (his 2010 commentary on our housing crisis) and No Man’s Land.
