A water-filled rath appears on the ocean’s edge, within it, a basalt causeway. “Finn’s Place” rests gently upon it, an invitation to welcome those who are enthusiastic and curious about the mythical aspect of our existence.

The Past, Present, and Future are linked by a Causeway. The project is a celebration of one of Ireland’s many rich landscapes, the present sense of confidence, and looks to a future where flexibility of spirit will help us all to move forward. 
Our proposal, for this “World Class Visitors Centre” is composed of a series of signs and intentions, a vision of where the project should go, linking mythology with the future.
