GRANLAHAN NS was fortunate to receive approval from Roscommon County Council to host an Artist in Residence Programme in the school during the months of May and June.
Local artist, Clea van der Grijn and the children painted a huge mural in the school shelter. Photographs of the children were incorporated into flowers and formed a central part of the mural. All the children in the school were involved in each stage of the project. A steady stream of visitors and parents called to see the work in progress. On Friday, June 24th the project was officially opened by Rev. Fr. J. Feeney P.P. in the presence of artist, teachers, members of B.O.M. and parents. The completed art project has received much favourable comment and adds great colour and artistic focus to the school grounds. Granlahan NS Board of Management would like to acknowledge the support of Roscommon County Council Arts Officer Mr Philip Delamere, for supporting the project from the outset
