The Library Mural

In  the Summer of 2012 , the library refurbishment was completed and new shelving and seating installed.  Two artists were invited to create  murals on three  blank walls. They asked the children to suggest characters from their favourite books and they were incorporated  these into the mural. Harry Potter, Clarice Bean, Kipper, The Gruffalo and Old Bear  are a few they chose.  All the characters were on a tree house with a  great view of the Phoenix Park.

On another wall they painted  a  giant’s foot descending from the clouds in search of the golden egg.

Castleknock history was also represented in a wistful mural of Castleknock Castle and it’s Celtic Cross.
