Nine Queens Sand Sculpture Festival

This weekend promises to be a lot of fun for all in Co. Sligo as a Sand Sculpture Festival will take place.

Nine sculptors will work with community groups at nine locations along the coastline of County Sligo to create a series of sand sculptures representing the daughters of Manannán mac Lír, sea god of Irish mythology.

The sculptors who are scheduled to take part include Stefanie Brüning, Philip Brett, Barra Cassidy, Peter Crann, Seamus Dunbar, Patty Hudak, Jackie McKenna, Bettina Seitz and Niall Walsh.

The nine beaches that will be used for the sand sculpture festival are Dunmoran, Enniscrone, Strandhill, Rosses Point, Yellow Strand, Streedagh, Cliffoney and Mullaghmore.
