Created for Askeaton Contemporary arts "Welcome to the neighborhood" program 2009.
With the implementation of motorways and bypasses, villages such as Askeaton, West Limerick has become somewhat overlooked. The original role of the predecessor or old road becomes overshadowed in terms of functioning as a way in which to travel. Instead, its redundancy charges the space as vehicle in which to revive narrative. The work aims at recovering factual accounts of the specter or phantom coaches, which are said to have haunted the old roads of south County Limerick. The artist’s intention to form a new perspective upon bypassed spaces.
