A huge troll has turned heads on its arrival into Donegal this week.
The 40-ft tall character, named Stor, is on holiday in Dungloe. He will be a top feature of a magical children’s art and story trail at the Riverwalk.
Stor’s journey to West Donegal itself generated a lot of excitement.
The art sculpture came from Sticky Fingers, an arts programme in Newry. It is so huge it had to be transported to Donegal on the back of a lorry, with special supervision from the PSNI and Cathaoirleach of Donegal, Cllr Jack Murray. A massive passport was presented to ensure Stor’s safe crossing across the border.
Now seated at the Dungloe River Walk, Stor is attracted fans young and old.
The aim of the arts project is to create a magical living storybook devised through a trail of intertwined fairy/troll houses and arts features creating a childhood land with Trolls, Giants and Fairies inspired by legend and mystical folklore.
