February 2020

In November 2019 The Bábóg Project became a year old. In that year we have collected hundreds of dolls and know that hundreds more are being made all around the Island of Ireland, indeed all around the world.

People have gathered in living rooms and kitchens, in knitting shops, in arts centres, in cafes, in museums, in farms, to work together on making dolls for the project. And people have worked alone, making 1 or 2 or even hundreds on their own. Everyone finding their own way to express their love and deep caring for the little ones who lost their lives in Ireland’s mother and baby homes.

The Bábóg Project has held several workshops in Cork city and county, and is hoping to continue holding workshops bringing people together to learn a new, ancient skill. And to help heal this wounding that Ireland carries as a collective.

The Bábóg Project has appeared in the Irish Examiner, Cork’s 96fm, The Southern Star and VIP magazine.
