Mural marks Cork’s citation as Europe’s friendliest city

VISITORS arriving in Cork city are being greeted by an eye-catching new mural from local artist Garreth Joyce.

The vivid red mural, painted on the wall at McMahon’s Builder’s Providers on Water Street, was sponsored and commissioned by Cork City Council.

The location was chosen so it will be seen by thousands of visitors on coaches and trains as they enter the city.

It celebrates the city’s recent citation as Europe’s Friendliest City by the renowned Conde Nast Traveler publication.

The magazine described Cork as ‘intimate and picturesque’ and said: “Cork is bursting with cozy pubs and beer gardens, where you can enjoy the outdoors while sharing a table with friendly locals.”

Cork was ranked third in the world overall, behind Mexico’s San Miguel de Allemande and Santa Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

Mr Joyce, an illustrator and graphic designer, has also been involved in the murals decorating many of the electric power boxes around the city.
