Gordon D'Arcy Murals
This is the shelter that Gordon Darcy added his mural - part of the Heritage in Schools Project.
Gordon reflected the flora and fauna of the Ardagh area.
Both rabbits and hares can be seen in the fields regularly
This side panel (on the outside of the left wall of the shelter) shows a forest scene with deer, rabbits and pheasants.
There are deer in the woods nearby. They can sometimes be seen in the evening.
Mallard (male and female in the pic) can also be seen. Pic also has a heron and what looks like a stoat or weasel.
Swans populate the turloughs and ponds in the area. These are probably teenagers who have been pushed away by their parents.
This is an overall view of the shelter mural.
These are some of the native species which can be seen in their native habitat, the school!
