Completion of Roundwood community mural is celebrated
A GATHERING took place at Roundwood Parish Hall to celebrate the completion of a nearby community mural.
The mural project was organised by Roundwood Tidy Towns/ Community Council with funding through the Community Education Service of KWETB.
Local resident Kevin Merrigan kindly allowed his side wall to become the wonderful canvas for the mural in an ideal location opposite Roundwood Parish Hall. Local artist and craft worker Aoife Patterson, working with nine volunteer artists, captured the ideas of the group and created the concept for the mural.
The artists got painting every Friday morning and have produced a wonderful vista depicting some of the iconic scenes of the area. The mural features wonderful man-made structures from the Vartry Reservoir Water Tower and cup-marked stones to nature features of the area including trees, fields, the Sugarloaf Mountain and plenty more.
Monica Byrne of Roundwood Tidy Towns said: ‘The mural really brightens up this area of the village and is a credit to all involved.’
