Mary Street


Mary Street, LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • The name of Mary Street comes from its proximity to St. Mary’s Cathedral, which was founded in the late 12th century.
  • This site was one of six listed venues for the 29th edition of EVA in 2005, curated by Dan Cameron (b. 1956, USA).
  • It was one of a number of city centre locations for Regina Corcoran’s (Ireland) work Alternative Gardens – an urban nature trail (2005), which guided people to locations where weeds were naturally occurring in the urban environment.
  • The artist described her intentions to ‘explore fracture points where nature and civilisation collide and overlap within the urban environment’. The work was designed to encourage ‘people to question their perception of value and order’ and ‘explore the potential of alternatives offered by a world largely disregarded as something quite separate to the human condition’.
