In These Rooms-Greer MacKeogh

This project is a collaboration between the artist as ‘guest’ and the Boyle community as ‘host’, to draw together a portrait of the Royal Hotel, past and present. 

‘The Royal’ closed in 2012 after 230 years in operation and reopened as an Exhibition and Enterprise Space in 2023.

A period of research and development by the artist, funded by Create in 2018/19, laid the groundwork for this project. It led to a framework for a collaborative process of producing the artwork in stages from 2021 to 2024, with the support of Creative Ireland

The outcome will be a site-specific, collaborative artwork, made up of stories and images shared by the community, and the artist’s own response to her experiences in Boyle. It is about sharing experiences of hospitality, in a time when many rural hotels across Ireland have closed or been repurposed.

To that effect the project will continue to support cultural infrastructure in the county to enable improved access to and participation in cultural activities.
