A two-wall mural and a sculpture-of-sorts for a primary school in Dublin as part of the Per Cent For Arts Scheme. Collage workshops were held with the children of the school, which were then incorporated into the artwork.

The sculptures were inspired by workshops on the theme of seasons by the junior pupils of the school. The shapes were made from galvanised steel, and represent the changes throughout a year.

The murals were developed as a result of workshops on the theme of Irish Myths and legends with the senior pupils. From left to right, Fionn MacCumhaill, the Children of Lir, Oisin and Niamh in Tír na Óg, and the Salmon of Knowledge are depicted.
