A new piece of street art has been completed in Ballina town centre, to coincide with the start of the Ballina Fringe Festival.

Renowned Dublin-based street artist Maser has created a vibrant abstract installation on a large site on Hill St - to the rear of Clarke's Salmon Smokery.

The artwork is the fourth piece created for Ballina Fringe Festival's #Pure Ballina community street art project.

While the Covid-29 pandemic has forced the cancellation of most festivals this year, the Fringe Festival programme has been adapted to meet level 3 restrictions currently in place.

The festival's Facebook page is offering new events daily - including the video launch today of a local artists' visual art exhibition.

Other events include video tours of the Ballinglen Museum of Contemporary Art and of Ballina's Ice House and its art collection, as well as workshops with best-selling writers Morag Prunty and Mike McCormack.

The festival runs until 18th October, with a programme of literature, talks, tours and street art - and a range of events available online .
