new sculpture

A new sculpture was unveiled in Gaoth Dobhair Sunday in honour of all young people who have passed away.
The powerful artwork – entitled Suaimhneas – is located in the garden to Páirc an Phobail (The Community Park) on Páirc Ghnó Ghaoth Dobhair (Gweedore Business Park).

It was created by the community in loving memory of children, teenagers and young adults who died in the vibrancy of their youth, through illness or tragedies.

Credit goes to renowned Donegal sculptor, John McCarron, for the design of the impactful memorial. It now sits in a public space where people are welcome to visit, pause and remember those who are gone before us, but live in our hearts and memories.

saturday critters

waiting patiently for his/her human.  He was getting a little restless so he moved over to the driver's side to get a better look and wasn't too happy about it.  He was outside looking in to a cafe.

strange setup

I have no idea what this setup means, it looks like junk but was worth a photo.  To the right of this you can see bags of kindling for sale.  Maybe it's all part of someone's business but I didn't see one.
