Yesterday, on April 25th, to coincide with the national 1916 commemorations, David Doyle launched his historical blog 'Carraiglea - Witness To History' in IADT. David and I have been collaborating on the project for the past 4 months and I've been working hard on the production of 7 animated collages, featuring stopmotion, CGI, documents and interviews.
In 1916, detachments of Sherwood Foresters and artillery transited through the grounds of Carraiglea, which was then a relatively new Christian Brothers Industrial school. Whilst referring to the Christian Brothers account from 1916, my collages concentrate more on the life of one young Carraiglea resident, Master George Jennett and on the pre-revolutionary climate in Ireland, in the runup to the Easter Rising.
