DAINGEAN Library hosted the unveiling of three graffiti art pieces painted by young people from Daingean Youth Club as part of their Graffiti Art Project on Wednesday last.

The unveiling was attended by the young people involved in the project, parents, youth leaders, teachers from Daingean National School, the town’s librarian, Artist Vincent Devine and other members of the community.

The three art pieces depict the story of Daingean’s past, present and future from the perspective of young people living in the area.

The aim of the project in which the three art pieces were created, was to give young people a voice on issues affecting the local area and to put across their vision of Daingean’s future. Young people explored their likes, dislikes, hopes and concerns for Daingean using graffiti art as a means of expression.

Both the project and the unveiling were a great success. Young people explained the meaning behind each of the peices to everybody in attendance. Light refreshments were provided on the evening.

The group would like to thank Claire Walsh, Librarian, Vincent Devine, Artist, the county library, volunteers at the youth club and most importantly the young people and their parents.
