Letterkenny’s Cathedral Quarter committee has sent out a huge thanks to anyone who sponsored a block for their stunning mural.
The official unveiling of the Lawrence Collection Mural has been delayed until the current restrictions are eased.
However, the Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter committee would like to thank everyone who assisted in its creation.
Last year, artist Ciaran Dunlevy was commissioned to paint the iconic photograph of Church Lane and St Eunan’s Cathedral taken by Robert French at the turn of the 20th century on the gable end of No. 2 Church Lane.
Owner of the building Lee Gooch had given his blessings.
North West Scaffolding very kindly donated the scaffolding for the project and former County Councillor Donal Kelly Senior sponsored the breathable paint.
The committee then asked the public if they would like to buy a block on the wall to help cover the cost of the mural and we would like to thank all those who contributed.
They include: Marian Gibbons, Paddy Friel, Cllr Gerry McMonagle, Daniel Joseph Wilkins, Kiera & Amelia Wilkins, Shop Lk, Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce, Cllr Donal Coyle, Cllr Kevin Bradley, Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh, Jim Lynch, Caolan Harvey, Denise Blake, Tony Kelly, Donegal Daily, Packie & Hannah Gibbons, Margaret(Mgt) & Patrick Kearney, Magees Pharmacy, Shane Toolan, Pro Ice Clean, John O’Loughlin & Son Ltd, Stockdale and Mills Family, Moira Foley Mills, Anna May Nig Fhloinn, The Conwal Singers, Joe & Margaret Harvey, Lelia Larkin Colfer, Charles & Eileen McHugh, Kay C Designs, O’Gorman Cunningham & Co., Mary Farrell Tax Consultant, Antoinette Forrester, Sally Anne Sherry, The Grant Family, Orla Duffy, Sarah McGlinchey, Claire Kinsella, Ellis Doherty and Eileen Harte, Joshua Kelly, Layla Noblett & Aidan Doherty, Paddy Smyth, Brian Grant, Deborah Callaghan, Patsy Gildea Correnagh, Anne Marie Hesselden, Thys Heys, Neville Gooch, Mhairí and Croí Larkin, Gareth Wilkinson, Donnan Harvey, Bank of Ireland, Lifford Credit Union, Wild Atlantic Productions and Brian McCormick Sports.
A plaque with the names of all those assisted in the creation of the mural will be unveiled during the official launch.
