Friz, Naoise Sheridan, Margaret Nolan, Tracey Moca, Louise Gardiner, Marie Moylan, and Giordana Giaché, street artists
We were extremely proud in 2021 to have been one of the largest funders of street art and mural projects in Ireland. Projects that brightened walls and hoardings across the country included the work of Sligo artist Friz, whose Ardú mural at St. Finbarr’s Road, Cork depicted the goddess Clíodhna.
In Galway, the works of Naoise Sheridan, Margaret Nolan and Tracey Moca were among the 100 works of electricity box art adding pops of colour to the cityscape. Over in Kerry, Louise Gardiner – better known as Mack Signs – helped GW Joyce reimagine quotes from poet Brendan Kennelly and author Maurice Walsh into attention-grabbing murals, while in Monasterevin, Marie Moylan brought a little bit of nature to utility boxes around the town.
And in Ennis, artist Giordana Giaché teamed up with husband Martin Shannon to turn humble drain grates into humorous works of playful street art.
