Poetry & Place: Photographic interpretations of Louis MacNeice by Allan LEONARD for Northern Slant 25 July 2017
Women of the Ards peninsula worked with community artist, Jane McComb, to use photography not only to document social, maritime, and agricultural legacy of the area, but also to give interpretation to the writings of poet, Louis MacNeice (1907–1963), who is buried locally in Christ Church, Carrowdore.
In an audio interview, Jane McComb described the genesis of this project. Also, Sheilagh Rainey of the Peninsula Women’s Group explained how her participation “started something in me” and has encouraged her to keep writing prose and poetry:
