Pictures: The new lesbian mural placed on the side of a castle in Co Galway

The artwork, completed in recent days, is at Caherkinmonwee Castle – around 20 minutes from the city.

A NEW MURAL depicting two women has appeared on the side of a castle in Co Galway.

The artwork, in the same style as the male version painted in Dublin earlier this year, was completed in recent days. It’s at Caherkinmonwee Castle in Co Galway, which is in private ownership.

The new mural is also by Joe Caslin – the artist who was behind the George’s Street artwork. He revealed on Instagram in recent days that he was working on plans for new project – at a location west of the Shannon.

The Dublin mural, which went up on the side of a building overnight at the start of April, was designed as a “poignant representation of same sex love in the city”.

It became a focal point of the debate about same-sex marriage – with some No campaigners calling for it to be taken down. The biodegradable artwork was damaged by weather at the end of last month – although parts of it still remain in place.
