Members of Foróige in Co. Offaly displayed their Artwork "Together in Community" in The Aldi Marquee at the National Ploughing Championships in Screggan this week.

The installation is a mixed media artwork made using a newspaper and comic strip collage; pop art in acrylics; acrylic portrait; with elements using the sculptural technique relief, where objects are attached to the main piece.

The piece is about being part of a wider community, the importance of family, friends, education, joy, fun, learning and the role the Foróige Aldi partnership in developing community belonging. 

The Artwork was on display in The Aldi Marquee during the entire event, and attracted lots of attention from the thousands of people who attended, including Fine Gael TD Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy, and Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin TD.
