New murals on display at performance space in Fairlane Park, Dungarvan

Waterford City and County Council enlisted The Walls Project (the company behind Waterford Walls) to work with students in four Dungarvan secondary schools to create these murals for the new outdoor performance space in Fairlane Park, Dungarvan.

Facilitating artists Magda Karol and Jorge Ruiz worked with four groups of talented young artists to produce eight artworks to adorn the concrete benches at the space, with a theme of ‘the beauty and heritage of Dungarvan’. The students have produced some fantastic, eye-catching work and really captured the essence of Dungarvan and what it has to offer.
