In May I was delighted to be invited by Trócaire to help 2 primary schools in Skerries paint a mural about Climate Justice. The project was coordinated by Milverton National School Prinicipal Johnny Tyndall and brought students from Milverton together with students from Réalt na Mara National School. Trócaire staff explored the theme with the students and then I came in to help them design and paint the mural. We came up with the slogan "There is Hope if we Act Together" and created 3 characters representing young people from all over the world becoming conscious of Climate Justice and acting together to create a better world. I really loved working with the students. You can see the mural in Skerries SuperValu carpark.
Last Saturday 6th September was a very special day. We launched the Mural at St Anne's Allotment in St Anne's Park, Raheny. This project, which began in April was a collaboration between myself and the Allotment Committee members, assisted by artist Mary Callaghan and supported generously by Dublin City Council. More photos to come soon. Below you can (l-r) Deputy Lord Mayor Cllr Damian O'Farrell, Brian Hanney (Allotment Committee) and myself cutting the ribbon. A BIG Thank You to the Allotment Committee for organising the launch.
Thank you to Kevin McNally for these photos.
