To celebrate Stoneybatter Festival 2021, join Librarian at the National Museum of Ireland, Orla Fitzpatrick and local artist Angela Monks McDonagh who will re-visit the research and live performance, at the live art event room.


This research into the house on Arbour Hill shows the impact of the First World War on a local family. The talk will be of interest to anyone researching their own home and local history. Booking required.

Orla Fitzpatrick studied History of Design and Material Culture at the National College of Art and Design Dublin (N.C.A.D.) and has a PhD in photographic history from Belfast School of Art, Ulster University. Her recent publications include a journal article on fashion and fanzines in 1980s Dublin (Vox, Dublin: Hi Tone Books, 2019) and a book chapter on nineteenth century photography in Leitrim (Leitrim History & Society, Dublin: Geography Publications, 2019). She teaches history of photography and visual culture at N.C.A.D.'s Continuing Education in Art & Design Department and is the librarian for the National Museum of Ireland.

Angela Monks McDonagh is a practicing artist based in Dublin. She completed her MFA in Sculpture at the National College of Art and Design in 2015. Since graduating she has set about creating possibilities to engage with and facilitate flow within pre-existing communities, in architectural spaces. The emphasis is in the solid set against the ephemeral.
