100 names

2016, 4 channel sound installation

100 Names is a portrait of community activism in a suburb of Limerick. It is a recording of the names of 100 local activists.

It was recorded with the St Mary’s Community Development Advisory Committee in Limerick in 2016 naming local community activists in the area that they know. Prior to the closure of St Mary’s Community Development Project in 2012 the centralisation of CDP services, the people involved in this recording had been involved in community work locally for the previous 20 years in many cases.
