These unique artworks aim to present and promote the Irish language through using proverbs to look at our contemporary times, a reflection on the past year, a look to the future and to celebrate the resilience and community spirit of the Irish people at the time of our national holiday celebrations.
Irish Proverb: Leagfaidh tua bheag crann mór.
This literally means that a ‘small axe can fell a big tree’ and with that in mind, it is possible to do great things through small deeds.
Commissioned by St. Patrick's Festival in partnership with Hen's Teeth.
Supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the 20 Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010 – 2030.
