Mulhuddart Satellite is a major exhibition by Michael McLoughlin, at the midpoint of his 3 year ­residency (2017 to 2019) in Mulhuddart,  a community on the doorstep of Draíocht.  The exhibition presents a number of mappings of Mulhuddart through drawings, soundscape, audio recordings and radio broadcasts. 
The artwork and accompanying engagement programme reflects the lived experience of people, groups, clubs and agencies who make Mulhuddart the community it is.

Mulhuddart Satellite and the longer term relationship with Mulhudart through McLouhglin’s residency, exemplifies Draíocht’s local participation focus in its new 2018 to 2022 Strategy - ‘Space for the Arts’ and the community involvement central to the work of Mulhuddart Priority Task Group and the recently published Mulhuddart Strategic Development and Implementation Plan.
