Following Catholic Emancipation churches were built across the country and with them grew networks of mass paths. A Well Trodden Path, explores the heritage of mass paths in Lackagh Co Galway,Ireland. A web of 15 mass paths was mapped out. Fragments of old tracks, stiles and footbridges were pieced together with the recollections of older parishioners.
Dunnett photographed traces of these paths and used them as source images to create and tone cyanotypes with a leading brand of Irish tea, a favourite of many who walked the paths. Dunnett layers her work. She is drawn to this process and how it relates to the years of footfall across the fields and the many stories attached.
A Well Trodden Path is a partnership project with Dr Hilary Bishop, Liverpool John Moores University, funded by the British Academy and supported by NUI Galway. Special thanks to Lackagh Museum Association and its community.
