The Ancestors

room 48 ECHOES

The Ancestors is a hauntological sound trail by artist Joseph Young made in response to the written archives of Killruddery House. As you wander the grounds, you may encounter historic characters and events, some strange and beautiful sounds and The Keeper of the Archive, a ghostly poet-philosopher.

Before you start:
1. Make sure your phone has a good charge
2. Connect your headphones
3. When prompted, download the walk in advance if you have access to wi-fi - the walk will also work in streaming mode 4. The sound trail starts immediately after the ticket office - you can turn right for a short way, or left into the formal gardens
5. Follow the circles and marked areas and let yourself drift

Concept, Sound Design & Production: Joseph Young

Actors: Nico Brown, Serena Brabazon, Michael Hilliard Mulcahy, Killian Kirwan

PhD Supervisor: Prof. Lizbeth Goodman

'The Ancestors' is part of a practice-based PhD research project, 'Killruddery: Listening to the Archive' at SMARTlab UCD, funded by the Irish Research Council and Killruddery Arts, Heritage & Culture.

A big thank you to the Brabazon family for inviting me into their home
