Well now I’m back in Manchester, hence the late and probably short posting, I’ve been traveling for most of the day. Dublin is only a 40 minute flight from Manchester, but the Cow House is over 3 hours from Dublin, so it’s taken me a while to get back.

My time at Cow House has been wonderful, I would really like to thank Rosie and Frank for the opportunity they gave me to go and work there over the last 10 weeks, it was an amazing, cathartic experience which I feel will have a profound effect on my work. They run a fabulous place there, I really can’t recommend it highly enough as an artist residency and although I wasn’t there during the summer program; knowing their passion and work ethic I’m sure that it will deservedly go from strength to strength.

I’d also like to take this chance to say thank you and goodbye to everyone else I met in Ireland who made my time there so memorable, especially to Mary & Michael and all their family and friends. I’ll be back to see you all next year and I can’t wait.
