Location: Our Lady of Victories Boys National School

Key Message: Irish Wildlife - playful, colourful and awe inspiring creatures!



A collaboration between Bloom | The Art Project and Our Lady of Victories Boys National School to decorate the yard spaces with gentle, playful and vibrant Irish Wildlife, creating a small Irish Safari within the confines of their school.


‘Twas a fabulously sunny week in Our Ladies of Victories Ballymun when we landed with our spray paints and pain buckets. Our mission was to transform the school yard from yellow walled sanctuary to Irish Wildlife Haven.

After a very fun and enthusiastic workshop with some of the little gentlemen attending the school we had an array of animals to create and a vision of what the scene should look like.

We were blessed with weather, supporters and encouragement from the pupils, who cheered us on during their lunch time breaks.

We wanted to give more life to the space, create an atmosphere of curiosity and colour. With the animals and plants poking their way up through the grassy lands, there’s a lot to keep the kids guessing.

We loved doing this mural alongside some of the dedicated staff who were delighted to leave their own mark on the wall. We were absolutely delighted with how it turned out, a true team effort. Nature is a theme we love to recreate and it really fitted into the landscape of this yard perfectly.

We hope the pupils and staff alike get lots of joy from this mural over the next few years 🙂
