Paul McCarthy, Aoife Murphy

Since 2006, Paul McCarthy and Aoife Murphy have been documenting the sites of handball alleys (‘Pinniúr’ in Irish) throughout Ireland. There are estimated to be around 700 outdoor alleys in Ireland, though this number is in decline due to demolition. The photographs are accompanied by architectural models of the alleys created by Peter Carroll of a2 Architects.
