New Mural in Kilmallock

New Mural In Kilmallock Photo John Mortell (3)

The much anticipated medieval mural was erected opposite the castle in Kilmallock last week by the Tidy Towns group. The mural is 12 ft wide and 11 ft high depicts street life of the early 16th century in what was one of the finest walled towns in Ireland. The detail is correct for that period in time, for the clothes and hair styles worn to the weapons used. But it is the scale and wealth of the buildings that is of most interest, all of which are correct. Thanks to Sarah in Limerick Council, Uto Hogerzeil who did the artwork, Davenchie who did the printing and Joe Young for the use of his building. The castle is the main focal point of the town and this mural will add much information and interest to this location.
The fifth Good Friday Clean Up also took place last week and 55 local volunteers picked litter on the approach roads to the towns.  The volume of litter collected was down on previous years, so hopefully it is an indication that fly tipping and littering is not acceptable. As per other years the volunteers gathered at Deebert Hotel and returned there for refreshments afterwards.Many thanks to all who turned out.
After many years, over 20 of the towns building on the main streets have been painted on the County Council funded Love Your Street Scheme and the town looks much improved as a result.
