Liffeytown Press Coverage

I was thrilled by the amount of media interest in the project. In December Peter Crawley, the chief theatre critic for the Irish Times picked Liffeytown as one of his cultural highlights of 2010. You can read the full article here.

Peter Crawley Cultural Highlights 2010 (outside theatre)
The Irish documentary His & Hers . This was a moving if undiverse study of relationships and absence. Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher's intelligently propulsive collaboration on The Social Network , not to mention Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross's superb soundtrack. Every record and dance move Robyn issued this year. Fergal McCarthy's arch and eloquent installation, LiffeyTown, which used floating Monopoly properties to reflect and transform Dublin.

The Wall Street Journal used images of Liffeytown in October in a story about the Irish economy, you can view the article here.

The German broadsheet Der Spiegel also mentioned the project in November, here's the link.

The Financial Times ran a story 'The Irish Crisis in Pictures' which included an image of Liffeytown.

A photo of the installation also featured in the NewYork Times in October.
