Band, The Pale (Matthew Devereux (vocals), Shane Wearen (mandolin) and Sean Molloy (bass), were paired with three of our local heroes, Sister Bernadette, Paddy ‘Drac’ Finlay and Maureen Grant. Over a number of weeks, they met with, chatted to and learned all they could about these extraordinary characters and all that they do for their communities.

Towards the end of 2018, The Pale visited each hero at a celebration in their own community to perform their portraits for them, in front of their family and friends. In November all of the artists and heroes joined us in City Hall for a night of celebration.
