The Memorial Mosaic we are working on in a school in Dublin is coming on nicely. Thousands of items that were donated by the kids in the school were stuck onto the backing boards last week. Over 500 people have been involved so far including the 465 kids, 20 staff, 14 volunteer parents and the family and friends of Caroline Dwyer-Hickey who the artwork is in memory of. A blog has been set up by the school that follows the progress of the Mosaic; HERE
