Our Culture Warriors Inchicore program invites participants to explore what it means to be a culture warrior through workshops in visual art, songwriting and rap and ancient Irish self defense. We also learned about the internationally known artist Sean Scully who is from Inchicore.
Island of Sheep

We asked Luca (14) to make this video that shows the parts of south Dublin and north Wicklow that was once known as the land of Cuala.
