Cúl an Tí

Sa bhliain 2015 tógadh cosán siúilóide ar taobh Ionad Cultúrtha, ‘Slí Bhriain’, in onóir dalta scoile, Brian Ó Tuama, a fuair bás go thobann.
Is áis iontach é an cosán siúlóide seo agus bíonn muintir na h-áite agus cúirteoirí á úsáid de shíor.  Tá taobh falla an Ionad Cultúrtha le feiscint go soiléir –nuair a bhíónn tú ar an cosán seo agus is falla mór árd é. B’é an plean a bhí againn ná úsáid ealaínte a bhaint as an falla seo chun suim sna ealaíne a mhúscailt i measc an pobal agus chun aitheantas a thabhairt dár sínsir agus do dhaoine a chuir go mór le saibhreas na dúthaí agus a raibh tionchar mhór acu ar muintir na h-áite. Rugadh Seán Ó Riordáin ar an 3/12/1916 agus mar sin, bheartaíodh saothar ealaíne a crothú in omós don file cáiliúil aitiúil seo.  Chruthaigh dearc ealaíontóirí, Cormac Sheil agus Denis O’Reardon, múrmhaisiú 3D ar an dán ‘Cúl an Tí’, a bheidh mar chuid de imeachtaí a bheidh ar siúl i rith na bliana, ag céiliúradh an bhfile, Seán Ó Ríordáin

In 2015, a circular walkway was constructed behind the Ionad Cultúrtha, honoring Brian Ó Tuama, who attended the adjoining school, Coláiste Ghobnatan, and who died suddenly a few years ago. This walkway is a great asset to the community and is used by school children, locals and visitors alike. One gable end of the IC building faces this walkway and was therefore very suitably placed for a wall mural.
Given that 2016 is the centenary of the birth of Seán Ó’Riordan, the well-known poet who was born in Ballyvourney, it was deemed very appropriate to mark this special poet by creating a mural of his most popular poem, ‘Cúl an Tí’ in his honour.  The 3D mural was created by two visual artists, Cormac Sheil and Denis O’Reardon and will be part of events taking place during 2016, in honour of Seán Ó Riordáin.
