The artistic young people from Foróige in Lusk working on the newest art for The Cottage

On Saturday 15th October, in spite of challenging weather conditions, Foróige and Lusk Community Council joined together to produce doing graffiti art at the Cottage Community Centre as part of the Fingal County Council ALAG (Anti Litter Anti Graffiti) project. Sustainability was the key message from the beautiful imagery produced from the collaboration, which was funded by Fingal County Council’s Environment Office. The new artwork is on display in the Cottage Community Centre car park and members of the public are encouraged to drop over to the Lusk centre view it.
