Michael Moran was born about 1794 in Faddle Abbey, off Black Pitts, in the Liberties of Dublin, popularly known as Zozimus.

He was an Irish street rhymer and also known as the “Blind Bard of the Liberties” and the “Last of the Gleemen”. We created a tactile and rich print piece, featuring photography of the era, depicting Zozimus through a woodcut illustration, based on a dilapidated charcoal etching we discovered in our research.
