For Those That Tell No Tales began as a series of conversations between Dara McGrath and Dan Breen, curator of Cork Public Museum, around how the museum and Cork city were to commemorate the Irish War of Independence. This kick-started a three year study of sites in and around the city. Preparation was taken before photographing each of the sites, extensive research included military statements, inquest reports, newspaper articles, historic archives and interviews with people in each locality.
The landscape itself bears witness to these events and by photographing them, we are reinserted back into that fractured space, acknowledging their existence so that their histories will not be forgotten. What connects them both is the relationship they have to the notion of the 'troubled landscape'.
