CANAL BANK MURAL BRINGS KAVANAGH TO GREENWAY

21 July 2016 No Comments by The Northern Standard

Walkers can read some inspirational poetry during their stroll from now on as a new mural commissioned by Monaghan Tidy Towns has just been completed along a section of the Ulster Canal Greenway near St Davnet’s Complex.

The mural features lines from poet Patrick Kavanagh’s “Canal Bank Walk” in script along part of the wooden fence with a depiction of the poet himself reclining along the bank. Artist Geraldine Martin, from Inniskeen, has been working on the project for some weeks – between the showers! Pictured are Artist Geraldine Martin with Tidy Towns representatives Emer Brennan, Sheila Connolly, John Macklin and John Nutley. Monaghan Tidy Towns wish to express their thanks to Carol Lambe for her inspiration for the project and her support during it.
