Secrets of Offaly - a series of public art commissions which seeks to expose remarkable hidden stories and their origins in the county.
As described on the Offaly County Council's Arts website; 'Offaly has some unique villages, many with distinctive architecture and histories and each with curious and remarkable stories to tell. This public art project uncovers three secrets. Three stories were choosen from three different villages all the stories relate to a famous family in that area. The Goodbodys in Clara (industry), The Hitchcocks in Kinnitty (film) and the Jolys in Clonbullogue (Science and literature). These stories are outstanding as a collective of ‘secrets’ to be told about Offaly, conveyed in a new way, to bring a new focus on Offaly as a county of hidden gems.'
The three projects can be found on publicart.ie
