Ghost Chapel / by FOUNDRY BOTTLE

The 6th-century island chapel in Connemara was originally built as a shrine to St MacDara and locals would make a pilgrimage to the island every year on 17 July. But in recent years weather conditions have made the sea crossing impossible and the student project sought to create an alternative mainland structure. 

The structure will be transported to Galway Museum in October 2017 to become part of the Galway 2020 celebrations. The chapel will become a maker of the original chapel and will relate to the tradition of the mass carried out every year in Connemara.
