Artist: Sarah Bracken
Artwork Title: 'Out of the Ring into the Jungle'
Artwork Location: Sean Mac Dermot, Dublin 1
Description: This piece depicts Irish fighter Conor Mc Gregor. I pay tribute to Conor, a fellow Crumliner. Whose hard work, passion and positivity has inspired many to strive for their dreams. The sides of the box will have inspiring quotes from Conor such as: ‘Be passionate, be optimistic, be grateful.’ – Conor McGregor. I'd like this piece to go on Sean Mac Dermott Street Lower. This is just around the corner from Champions Avenue, named because of the many famous boxers that came from that area in the 1930's and 1940's.
