This work was created as a response to Tara Flynn's powerful words in her piece Brigid and Butter that was originally written for the London Irish centre and reappeared on Instagram this year. A celebration of the pagan festival Imbolc, Brigid and Irish women, I made this piece to complement Tara's fantastic words.
A limited run of tote bags of this print are available, with all profits going towards Abolish Direct Provision, a grassroots organisation creating awareness about the disgraceful system of Direct Provision. They help empower asylum seekers while they wait for their international protection application to be processed and engage with the government to help abolish this inhumane system. If you would like to help in other ways, please consider signing this petition to end direct provision, or emailing your local TDs with this email template.
