Brabazon creates bottle top mural to bring residents together

The Brabazon community in Sandymount set out to bring their residents closer together during the lockdown. The activities team, lead by Jennifer Kidd Keating, came up with a project that would allow the nursing home and sheltered housing residents work together having spent so much time apart during the lockdown.

The mural made out of over 2,500 different coloured plastic bottle tops and titled ‘Scene of Dublin Bay’ is now proudly on display in the front garden. It shows the two iconic Poolbeg towers and other features of Dublin bay.

The 8ft x 4ft board was drawn and painted and then each bottle top was carefully stuck on by the residents involved. It was a real community effort turning rubbish into art and everyone had great fun and chat doing it.

Pictured above are some of the residents and the team beside the mural.
