A giant mural depicting the US Presidential candidate Joe Biden has been unveiled in Ballina.

The painting, measuring 5m x 3.5m, was completed by local artists Smiler Mitchell and Leslie Lackey in recent days.

Mr Biden has links to Co Mayo and has visited the area on a number of occasions in recent years.

He travelled to Mayo in 2016, in his capacity as US Vice President. In 2017, he returned to turn the sod on a new hospice building outside Castlebar.

The mural was unveiled yesterday evening on Market Square.

Mr. Biden's great, great, great grandfather, Edward Blewitt, emigrated to the US from Ballina over 160 years ago.
