hey may have only launched last night, but already Greystones 2020 are proving their worth…
Teaming up with the Greystones Tidy Towns, this new voluntary committee made up some of the town’s key movers, shakers and chancers have found the moolah and motivation to turn the town’s train station into an outdoor art gallery.
It’s local artist Tom Byrne who has been given the task of painting 16 portraits of the town’s cool and famous – those writers, painters, musicians, actors, etc, who have lived here, stayed here and been inspired by Greystones – which will then adorn the platforms and the entrance of our train station.
Take that, Bray!
We don’t want to give away too much here, but, let’s just say, we got a glimpse at some of the completed portraits, and, be the holy, they’re sweet.
Just not sure why Mrs Scuffil isn’t in there. Or GG.
We’ll keep you informed as to when, exactly, our train station will be transformed from The Happiest Place On Earth to The Coolest Portrait Gallery On The Planet. In the meantime, here’s young Tom on giving the town a whole new lick of paint…
