Larry the Gardener

These photographs were shown as a site specific work during the Eigse Carlow Arts Festival, curated exhibitions 2015 as part of the “9 Stones Artists” exhibition at The Gate Lodge, St. Patrick’s College.

Larry is the head gardener of St. Patrick’s College. He lived in this gate lodge from 1987 to 1991. Larry was 17 when he moved in.  He was the last person to reside here.

A large magnolia tree grew opposite the Gate Lodge.  Larry adored this tree.  Due to the condition of the tree it had to be replaced.

Recently he bought his first house, which he is doing up.  Larry has chosen the pattern “Giant Magnolia’ as his wallpaper for his bedroom.
