by Walker & Walker
Bundoran Town Council commissioned four artists, Locky Morris, Grace Weir, Brendan Mc Gloin and Walker & Walker to develop sculptural pieces in response to the local coastal shorefront and sea cliff. The project was funded through the Bord Fáilte Tourism and Environment Initiative and Bundoran Town Council. The Town Council were assisted by the Artworking public art consultancy who recommended an artists panel. From here the selected artists were invited to submit proposals. Artists were asked to respond to the traditional nature of Bundoran as a playful, family orientated seaside resort.
