In the summer of 1986, shortly after the signing of the Anglo-Irish Agreement, writer Colm Tóibín walked the Irish border from Derry to Carlingford Lough. The documentation of this journey became his book, Bad Blood: A Walk along the Irish Border. 

As the centenary of partition approaches and within the current uncertainty over BREXIT, architectural historian Tom Keeley is retracing his route, walking the border with a view to researching and understanding its spatial and cultural implications from a number of different positions.

Tom Keeley is an architectural historian based in London working between architecture, geography, landscape and culture through writing, situated research, and publishing. Find out more about his practice HERE.
