Artist Nik Purdy working on the Joe O'Dowd painting on Old Market Street.

THE amazing street art around the city centre for the Fleadh includes many gems.

Such as the one honouring Sligo fiddle player Joe O' Dowd on Old Market Street. Shortly after Joe's death, the local Comhaltas was inspired to bring the Fleadh to Sligo in 1989.

Visual artist Nik Purdy is behind this creation.
