Cork City 2019

In September 2019, The Walls Project was commissioned by Cork City Council to do a large scale mural in Cork City.

The world-famous artist Fintan Magee realised this stunning mural that depicts a new migrant in Ireland launching Mexican Fleabane and Indian Balsam flowers into the ocean, across the ocean a silhouette of a coffin or famine ship sits in the distance. The work aims to tell the story of migration in Cork in both a historical and modern context. Highlighting the cities roll as an important point of cultural exchange, past present and future.
