The Parish is a video installation and a discursive space for considering the unique place that the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), and it's affiliated organisations such as the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) have in Irish society. 

Artist Michael Holly spent over three years documenting the many and varied aspects of the Clonakilty GAA community as part of his PhD research in Film & Screen Media at University College Cork. 

With its values of physical discipline, personal sacrifice through volunteering, community participation and consolidation of Irish identity, the GAA has, in many ways, come to define what it means to be a part of a community in contemporary Ireland.

A programme of talks and discussions will take place around the exhibition.
