Departures

Wexford  is a 9th century sea-going town. Many narrow lanes still run down from the main street to the quay. These lanes can often become littered and drab. So a group of young art students decided to brighten up Fettit’s Lane.

As a result of forced emigration in the past and at present they have chosen the theme “Departures”.

Another reason for choosing this theme is that across the mouth of the harbour there is a bird sanctuary well-known for its colony of Brent Geese who winter here between October and March and then head off for Canada and return each year.

The following images give an idea of what the lane looks like now:
