This may not be the right thread - but does any one know about the James Terrell installation piece in Skibbereen? My hisband and I will be in Ireland for the Bloolmsday celebrations, and after Dublin will be travelling around Cork & Kerry. We heard about the Lis Ard piece - but can't seem to find out if it is open to the public? still open? Location?
Many thanks for any onfo on this -- and does Kevin Roche have any buildings in Ireland?

Yes but as he said (in a letter to me a few years back)

Wilfrid Cantwell and Kevin Fox were the primary architectural assistants working with Patrick Scott on this project. Wilfrid was the project manager and planner. Together with Patrick Scott, Kevin was probably the strongest designer involved; Fred Hilton worked in a somewhat lesser role. My contribution was minor as I was engaged in a number of other projects including the bus garages in Donnybrook.

Ah...shame though. arguably the best we've ever produced and we have nothing to show for it
