Nine Queens

Join Blue Raincoat Theatre Company for Nine Queens this Saturday August 3rd from 12 - 3pm at nine beaches across Co. Sligo. This project is funded by Sligo County Council Creative Ireland Programme 2018-2022.

Nine sculptors will work with community groups at nine locations along the coastline of County Sligo to create a series of sand sculptures representing the daughters of Manannán mac Lír,  sea god of Irish mythology.

The nine sculptors are Stefanie Brüning | Philip Brett | Barra Cassidy | Peter Crann | Seamus Dunbar | Patty Hudak | Jackie McKenna| Bettina Seitz | Niall Walsh

The nine beaches are: Dunmoran| Enniscrone | Strandhill | Rosses Point | Yellow Strand | Streedagh | Cliffoney | Mullaghmore

The public are encouraged to document and share the work on social media using the hashtag #ninequeenssligo so we can track the project across the afternoon.
