Lacken Strand is one of those wide, open spaces that you can’t hide from or in. It is, to my mind, one of the most enchanting places on the island of Ireland. In the vastness of the expanse of the scene you really can’t escape or hide from the elements. While on retreat at the Ballinglen Artists’ Foundation I took daily walks at Lacken. The weather was broody and moody even in mid-Summer. Oftentimes, it felt like four seasons in one walk but even in perpetual motion there is always order in the natural world.
