Galway Suburbia Goes Wild!
Recently a series of unusual animal sculptures were constructed on rocks in a Galway housing estate in the Ballinfoile area.Cast in metal, these representations of Irish wildlife are located in green spaces across the estates of Baile na gCoiste and Ard na Choiste.
These sculptures are strikingly beautiful and powerfully realistic.
So well done to the Galway City Council and the local residents' association for this wonderful initiative that will become I believe an important tourist attraction..
More importantly, I earnestly hope that their presence will inspire increased awareness amongst local inhabitants of the importance of protecting the endangered real life versions of the rabbits, hares and foxes wildlife that live nearby in the Terryland Forest Park, which in itself in under threat from encroaching built development.
