Room 202, Archaeology Department, NUI Galway

Offaly, where the development of a sculpture park has been instrumental in not just creating a successful tourist attraction (over 120,000 visitors in 2017) but in re-imagining and reinforcing community values vis-à-vis the landscape. This level of community engagement is not evident in the Bendimahi Delta, where the socio-cultural circumstances are very different.
