One of Ireland’s largest street art projects has been completed.
Spanning 160.4 metres, the urban wildlife mural is part of a partnership between Iarnród Éireann and Aviva Stadium, and supported by Dublin City Council.

The image of an Urban Hawk created by Artists for All City Records, is in place on Wall 2 situated at the North end of Tunnel.
The central area displays a work collaboration between The Walls Project and Artists Holly Pereira, Omin and Decoy. The urban wildlife theme continues, depicting a black cat as it moves along the tunnel through, bright flowers, shapes and graphics.

Sounds like a healthy bran-based diet.
It’s not all hooman poo on that stretch of the Dodder. Opposite what you might call ‘Poo Corner’, lives this beautiful heron (above) – whom I commune with on a daily basis and who is, I can assure all, enchanted by his surroundings.
There is something seriously rotten in the insurance industry when a premium can increase from €593 to €1,413.34 including a full 50% no claims discount worth €1,782 & a full 27% penalty point discount of €505 from Aviva…
