My work is a manifestation of the modern, fragmented Irish identity apropos of the Irish language - an under-the-lens exploration of a non-native speaker. It chronicles the purgatorial disconnect between tradition and modernity in an English-speaking Ireland, and the *dream* of Irish - a place of purification and punishment - drawing from ethnofiction in film and Irish literature.
