Garrett
Phelan

Garrett Phelan was born in Fingal, North County Dublin in Ireland. His family history is rooted in the local villages of Skerries, Donabate & Portrane. Fingal has been an integral part of his thinking around his working practice as an artist since 1995.

In 2007 Garrett Phelan was invited by the Fingal County Council Arts Office to develop a public art project for the county, Phelan was selected based on his previous work and associations with the area . After a period of research he proposed a project entitled THE HIDE PROJECT which was influenced by the Balleally landfill site, a unique location which sits on the Rogerstown Estuary and is renowned for its birdlife.
