Artist: Cathal McCoy

Artwork Title: 'Batterbricks'

Artwork Location: Leonard's Corner, Portobello, Dublin 8

Artwork Description: All 4 faces of the box decorated with a colourful, lifelike brickwork pattern. The vibrant colours held within the old, familiar brickwork pattern representing the diverse mix of young people living in the old, attractive 'inner city suburb' of Stoneybatter. A simple but attractive piece based on the brickwork that has long been synonymous with Stoneybatter and the north inner city area.
