As part of an initiative called Creative Engagements, a number of trainees from the Prosper Fingal Training Service in Swords created a stunning Mosaic with Transition Year students from Fingal Community College. The trainees involved were Rebecca McGonagle, Eoin Donohue, Billy Kane, Hannah Doherty and Philip McCormack.
Everyone involved had creative input and designed specific sections of the Mosaic that represents well-known Swords landmarks. It took weeks to complete as each person was tasked with sticking hundreds of tiny coloured tiles to produce a wonderfully vivid piece.
This was a truly collaborative project and the social interactions that developed between Prosper Fingal trainees and Fingal Community College were just as important as the art that was created. It is one of many projects between these two Swords neighbours.
The Mosaic was unveiled at the Transition Year Graduation at the school on Wednesday and Billy and Hannah were delighted to represent the group at the ceremony.
It is hoped that the Mosaic will be displayed in a prominent outdoor location on Swords Main Street.
