Caraig Bhréige Artists Lesley Cox and Deirdre Buckley Cairns collaborate to consider the notion of a shared historical and social memory. Caraig Bhréige
‘A rock of which no part is above water in any tide – but which is not far below the surface of the sea’
Reflecting on this beautiful Irish phrase, ​the two artists ​will be researching the nature of fragmented social memory and perception of recalled events. ​​Memory is vital to experience, as we get older we recall events and experiences to make sense of our lives and decisions.

The older generation in our community and the insight they can give through their experiential memory are vital in our understanding of past and future actions. Using this rationale, we propose to engage with older members of the community to encourage them to share memories on past periods of social engagement as we share memories of ours. ​Their collaboration stems from a recognition of similar

When the Moors invaded West Cork and kidnapped Irish slaves

One of the reasons that those captured had English names was the practice of English landlords to give English name's to those whose names he couldn't pronounce, spell it just didn't like, and take away their Irish names

In 1631 the town of Baltimore, in West Cork, fell victim to a sensational attack by pirates which ended the 400-year reign of the O'Driscolls.

The Door of Reconciliation.

In 1492, two Irish families, the Butlers of Ormonde and the Fitzgeralds of Kildare, were involved in a bitter feud. This disagreement centred around the position of Lord Deputy. Both families wanted one of their own to hold the position. This tension broke into outright warfare and a small skirmish occurred between the two families just outside the city walls.

The Butlers, realising that the fighting was getting out of control, took refuge in the Chapter House of Saint Patrick's Cathedral. However, the Fitzgeralds followed them into the Cathedral and asked them to come out and make peace. The Butlers were afraid that if they did, they would be slaughtered, and so refused.

As a gesture of good faith the head of the Kildare family, Gerald Fitzgerald, ordered that a hole be cut in the door. He then thrust his arm through the door and offered his hand in peace to those on the other side. Upon seeing Fitzgerald was willing to risk his arm by putting it through the door, the Butlers reasoned that he was serious in his intention. They shook hands through the door, the Butlers emerged from the Chapter House and the two families made peace.

Today this door is known as the "Door of Reconciliation" and is on display in the Cathedral's north transept. This story also lives on in a famous expression in Ireland "to chance your arm".

Intergenerational Trauma.

[Image 1]: Events and experiences that can be traumatic include:
- the death of a child
- abuse or domestic violence
- loss of a significant piece of their cultural heritage
- divorce
- poverty
- living through a war fought in their homeland
- experiencing hate crimes, racism, or stigmatization
- sexual violence
- immigration to a new country
- a miscarriage or stillborn child
- addiction
- active combat for self or a family member
- extended unemployment
- estrangement from a loved one.
Family secrets are another indication of family trauma.

These have been identified by @lindsaybraman

These events are so common that they have been normalized and accepted (or denied) by society. Yet they are traumatic and have a great impact on our well-being and future generations.

[Image 2]: Trauma is defined as sensations and emotions that are NORMAL reactions to ABNORMAL events. Trauma is the "left-over survival energy" from an incomplete stress response to a horrible event. 💥The left-over survival energy is stored in both the mind (brain and nervous system) AND THE BODY. 💥This left-over energy disrupts our mental AND physical well-being. 💥It can be expressed as fear, shame, guilt, etc. 💣This can manifest as heart disease, obesity, addiction, self-harm. @autietraumageek

[Image 3] #intergenerationaltrauma is trauma that is passed on from one generation to the next. This occurs by both changes to the DNA (epigenetic), behavioural, physiological, and belief systems. @ayan_mukherjee_

[Image 4] Every single person you meet is either repeating a cycle of generational trauma or carrying the burden of breaking the cycles. @lindsaybraman
