These large scale back-to-back spectacle artworks that headlined the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2012. The ‘art mass’ was lead by the commissioned visual and performance artist, John Byrne, and featured contributions from a number of select artists and was attended by an audience of over 3,000 inside the cathedral. ‘The Rite of Spring’ curated by dance artist Breandån de Gallai, in collaboration with Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Company and featured a live performance of the original score on the steps of the cathedral on two grand pianos, attracting some 15,000 people. This basis of this commission was inspired by the architecture of the cathedral building, which dominates the town and also has very valuable windows, original artworks by the late stained glass artist, Harry Clarke.
