The Mural of a Lesbian Couple Placed on the Side of a Castle in Co Galway, Ireland

A new mural depicting two women has appeared on the side of Caherkinmonwee Castle in Co Galway, which is in private owned castle.

The artwork, in the same style as the male version painted in Dublin earlier this year.

The Dublin mural, which went up on the side of a building overnight at the start of April, was designed as a “poignant representation of same sex love in the city”. It became a focal point of the debate about same-sex marriage – with some No campaigners calling for it to be taken down. The biodegradable artwork was damaged by weather at the end of last month – although parts of it still remain in place.
