greencastle mural

This Mural in Greencastle is an image of a Greencastle yawl or drontheim, a traditional fishing boat for many centuries on the north coasts of Ireland and the northern seaboard of Britain. It was commissioned by Greencastle Community Development, and was completed in August 1999.
