Project to bring urban street art to Dundalk

The streets of Dundalk are set to get a lot more colourful thanks to an innovative project being funded by Dundalk BIDS and local traders.

They have commissioned well known local artist Barry Finnegan of Thinking Cap Design to create pieces of urban street art at various locations around town over the next 18 months.

The first one appeared at the Long Walk last Thursday and the public are being advised to keep their eyes peeled for more.

'We're focusing on different areas of the town and each piece will be individual and designed to fit into the landscape and suit the material we're working on,' explains Barry.

Unveiling the project, Dundalk BIDS said: 'Urban street art has a rich history in both the culture and economics of towns and cities across the world.'
