Reimagine Projects Around Ireland


Reimagine Belmullet

Reimagine Belmullet
Community partners: Damien Langan, Chair of Erris Chamber of Commerce and Katherine Mangan, Chair of Belmullet Tidy Towns
Architect: Mark Ruddy

Belmullet’s Hometown Architect team will guide the development of a whole-community vision for the sustainable development of the town, inclusive of the community’s many needs while seeking to preserve the unique character and architectural heritage of the town.

The Belmullet project is one of five around the country selected for Reimagine Hometown Architect initiative, a programme which focuses on the revitalisation of Ireland’s towns and villages.

    The project kicked off during Cruinniú na nÓg with on-street drawing workshops led by architect Mark Ruddy, with Erris Youth Club, Belmullet National School and TY students from Our Lady’s Secondary School and St Brendan’s College using chalk to re-map the streetscapes and reimagine the uses of these public spaces.

    During Belmullet Festival the installation “Living Room” was placed on the Carter Square. Displaying old photos, maps, sketches and thought-provoking quotes the installation invited people to stop and reflect about the use of public space in a accessible, inclusive and safe way.
