Threading the Táin: The Battle of Queen Medb

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


unded by Creative Ireland and produced by An Táin Arts Centre in association with Creative Spark, five intricate tapestries depicting scenes from the great Irish epic, Táin Bó Cúailnge, will be exhibited at An Táin Arts Centre from April 23rd. Each tapestry depicts scenes from the revered ancient epic that relate to the five counties mentioned in the Táin – Roscommon, Longford, Westmeath, Meath and Louth. When displayed together, the five tapestries portray the overall story of the Táin, while each piece also stands alone as an individual artwork. Christa de Brún is one of five poets commissioned by Creative Ireland to create a poetic response to the tapestries and will be representing the tapestry of Roscommon.
