Work Continues On Tipp Town Murals

167

Work is progressing on a fourth mural in Tipperary Town.

The mural is being installed by Andraii Palval as contracted by the Waterford Walls Project.

The work was commissioned by the Tipperary Town Revitalisation Task force and ultimately there will be five murals installed in Tipperary town before the end of the year.

The latest location is on the gable end of the former Royal Hotel on Bridge Street.

The property is owned by the Tipperary Co-Op so a “dairy” related theme was chosen.

The Friesian cow will bear ear tags numbered 1908 – 2022 to signify the founding year of Tipperary Co-Operative and it’s ongoing vitality as an enterprise.

The artist is a Ukrainian native and has been extensively involved with the Waterford Walls Festival of Murals most recently in August of this year.

His largest project in Ireland is situated in Killarney and comprises an 87M x 3M mural devoted to the theme of local biodiversity.

To date murals have been installed on Abbey Street, Blind Street and on Lakelands/James Connolly Park.

The fifth mural will depict the town’s musical heritage and is set to be installed on a wall on James Street by local artist Neil O’Dwyer.
