Cathal McGinley is ‘of’ Inis Bó Finne; he was born on the island but was raised in Magheroarty overlooking his family’s home place. Cathal obtained his degree in Sligo and later his MAFA in University of Ulster.
Throughout this formal education Cathal maintained a ‘grá’ for his home place and its people, customs and heritage. His methodology combines heritage, folklore, dinnseanchas and a love of his language and island community. Cathal’s work is attuned to ‘dúchas’ – it is both instinct and heritage and at the same time utterly contemporary, simultaneously ancient and modern.
