Mc Guinness was commissioned to make a work for Drop Everything, a contemporary cultural event which happened on the island of Inis Oirr off the west coast of Ireland in May 2012 (www.dropeverything.net). She created a procession with the help of the island children to celebrate St Gobnait, patron saint of the honey bee, who  is believed to have taken refuge on the island in the 8th century.
