Beyond the Pale

The phrase “beyond the pale” dates back to the 14th century, when the part of Ireland that was under English rule was delineated by a boundary made of such stakes or fences, and known as the English Pale. To travel outside of that boundary, beyond the pale, was to leave behind all the rules and institutions of English society, which the English modestly considered synonymous with civilization itself.

Silverbark Creative is situated on this old border and likes to think it too stretches the boundaries in creativity and design. From it’s base just outside Kilcock we are only 15 minutes from the M50 and the convenience of it’s transport links to any part of Dublin and beyond.
