Huge mural to honour Ruby return
WITH Cheltenham just days away, Irish betting firm Paddy Power celebrated champion jockey Ruby Walsh’s imminent return to the saddle from injury in fitting style, with a huge tribute to him in Dublin.
The horseman has recovered from his leg break, sustained before Christmas, to be race-fit for next week. To honour his efforts, Paddy Power created an epic image of Ruby and racehorse Faugheen with the help of artist collective SUBSET.
The artwork features an image of Ruby on the front of a building that is home to The Punnet Food Emporium on Lower Mount Street and a second of Faugheen, located just around the corner.
