Roesia de Verdun

Roesia de Verdun, an extraordinary woman in 13th century Ireland, defied conventions as a warrior, nun, and castle builder. Her legend lives on through the infamous ‘murder window’ where she threw the architect whom she promised to marry in exchange for building her the castle. The three swallows of the town’s coat of arms combined with the roses symbolize her legacy in Dundalk.

Part of the SEEK Urban Arts Festival, centred on promoting contemporary urban art in Dundalk, Ireland. By commissioning established and emerging artists locally, nationally and internationally, we aim to promote the town culturally and artistically, repositioning the area as a vibrant hub for creativity. 

SEEK 2023 will highlight the important influence art can have in the public domain, its role as a catalyst for change, helping reinvigorate and refresh some of our town centre spaces. The themes behind the artwork will be instrumental in telling Dundalk's story and connect people to our history and heritage.
