During the pandemic, we ‘battened down the hatches’ and focused in on whatever would aid us, keeping a look out for the markers signalling danger or good news. And now, as we begin to emerge from lockdown, we survey the scene, mark the point and journey onward…

Inspired by a shared aspect of our Leitrim and Fermanagh landscape, we are taking the theme of ‘way-point’ and ‘marker’ from ‘ancient paths and waterways’ as a way to reflect upon the individual and societal journeying from March 2020 to the where-ever we find ourselves now.

We invite you to contribute to this open mic – by way of remembering or marking a point or place reached, or by way of simply drawing attention.

Submissions received: Between Wed 1st July-12th July. To take part please email for How to Record/Transfer Instructions.

The event is a part of our ‘Across the Lines’ programme which seeks to connect people of north Leitrim and Fermanagh, developing connections and deepening cultural awareness and engagement across two jurisdictions. We thank the International Fund for Ireland for its support.
