I Claim Sanctuary
Galway City, Co. Galway
24 April - 30 June 2022
I Claim Sanctuary by Philip Fogarty is a sound installation in conjunction with Paper Boat, an opera presented by Music for Galway and Galway 2020 in association with Irish National Opera at St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church.

Fogarty’s work takes a closer look at the communities and individuals that have received shelter and that worship in this church. It combines insight, meditation and reflection and affords a glimpse into the enormous spiritual and historical richness of this place.

Weaving sounds from past, present and future, and featuring material from the opera Paper Boat, a cast of Galway voices and original music, 12 part sound installation takes the themes of this production to new places, marking a defining moment in the seven-hundred-year history of Saint Nicholas’ Church.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
