Brigid of Faughart Mural

We were thrilled to be involved in the development of the new Brigid of Faughart Mural created in Bridge Street, Dundalk as part of the SEEK Visual Arts Festival in August 2020. The mural was created by the wonderfully talented artist Friz, who is based in Belfast and who managed to incorporate so many aspects of Brigid as both Christian Saint and Pre-Christian Goddess in this exciting new artwork. The mural is located in Bridge Street in Dundalk, which is the street that local people would have passed along, when walking out to Faughart for the annual St.Brigid's Day celebrations - a very fitting location indeed. We wish to thank all involved in organising the fantastic SEEK art…

Schools Art Competition

Could she be a climate activist, a campaigner for the poor, a teacher, a creative artist, even a politician? We received a huge number of amazing entries and 6 winning portraits were chosen, which we are delighted to share with you here. The creativity and imaginations of our young 5th and 6th class students have really inspired us with hope for any number of future 'Brigids'!
