This inspiration came from experiences shared during family learning projects such as fun learning through crafts, inclusion of family and friends, friendships made in the community, working together through participation in family projects including wellness programmes, cookery and pottery.

The drawings from participants were projected onto the walls to create some fantastic colourful fun murals.

The end result was the re-vamping of the community building, which now displays a selection of the murals dedicated to families living in the area and who use the community building.

Acknowledgement and thanks to the ETB Dungarvan for funding this community activity and well done to all the participants for their enthusiasm and creativity.CAroline photos July 2017 075
