Ballinahown Development Association plan is to engage with the community, recreating the central sculpture in the village - initially made in bogwood in 2000.  This original sculpture with time has disintegrated and the group wish to recreate the sculpture in a new and meaningful way.  This will be done through engaging with the local community in discussion through art, trees, upcycled materials, and the role of art in the community.  The recreation of the wood element may not be solely in wood and may not look the same after the process.  It will reflect the new life and change in the village over the last 18 years.  The overall water feature will be maintained as it links to our lake and water reference locally and indeed the origin of the village.
