PHOTOS: Mural In Town Centre Is Looking Amazing

Posted by


Gabriel Galway at work on the mural on Saturday.

THE amazing mural at the Abbey Street/Dominick Street junction off The Square is due to be finished today and it looks amazing.

The new mural, some 20 metres long by 10 metres high, has been slowly revealing itself in Abbey Street just off The Square, over the past week in an area unofficially called ‘Tess Quarter’, after the late Tess Leane of The Abbey Inn.

It is being created by Gabriel Galway, with the idea of the project coming from Ken Tobin, joint founder of HQ Tralee, the co-working and business centre.

Gabriel assisted by Donal Tobin from Ballyroe, began work on Saturday last and it will be completed by Sunday evening.

The mural focusses on the original Rose of Tralee, Mary O’Connor, and her fiancé William Pembroke Mulchinock, who penned the famous ballad in her honour.

The project is sponsored by HQ, Abbey Inn, Cearnóg and Croí Restaurant and will give this high profile area between the The Square and Abbey Car Park a  lift. Scroll down for photos and a time-lapse video by B-Mobile…

The mural is looking amazing.
