Thursday Doors – Colourful Dundalk

Last week’s Thursday Doors from Dundalk might have had a bit of a grey theme but this week’s post is a lot more colourful. Let’s start off with one of my favourite door colours and a beautiful, traditional Irish instrument.

The next image includes a wall mural and a sculpture. The town of Dundalk is a great supporter of the arts.

The sculpture by Breda Marron, titled Heart Space, is a recent addition to the towns street art. The artist explains that “its essence links back to the Celtic concept of an ‘Anam Cara’, the Irish phrase for a ‘Soul Friend’. One who sees and accepts you for who you are and acts like a reflective mirror, reflecting the best of your inner light back to you.” *

You can read more about the sculptor and her work in the link at the end of the post.

I’m delighted you came along for another virtual tour of colourful Dundalk on this week’s Thursday Doors and if you carry on over to Norm’s blog you’ll find lots of interesting places and doors.

  3. These are all great, Jean, although the first and the food hall may be my favorites. I love the idea of a soul friend. I always hope to be that friend.

    Yes indeed it’s the cheery colours like this that can set a place apart from the typical urban setting. How could people not want to smile when walking down a fun looking street like this? Excellent captures 🙂

    Attractive streets, Jean. What you describe Soul Friend seems to come close to the concept of twin ship I have been talking about the last few weeks on my blog. Love the sculpture!
    One more last thing about the sushi: for the Japanese, sushi is supposed to be with a white or brown rice that is sticky, together with some other ingredients, rolled up on specific wooden mat..

  11. Loved these! I hope you don’t mind, I shared The image of the “House of Murphy” sign to my old friend with that last name. Maybe she will visit your blog too!
