Exploring decolonial possibilities of ancestral and land revitalisation in Ireland


Listen to the wisdom of the land..

Tuiscint na Talún can translate from Gaeilge as ‘wisdom/understanding of the land’. It is a philosophy that calls us to listen to the wisdom the land itself possesses as a being.

For this purpose, Tuiscint na Talún is an education and research project focused on opening critical conversations and providing frameworks to understand and hospice the modern/colonial way of being and whiteness as they manifest in Ireland.
