Sandsculptor Daniel Doyle visits Cashel


Sandsculptor Daniel Doyle visits Cashel

Sand sculptor Daniel Doyle visited Cashel recently in preparation for his visit to Cashel Arts Festival 2016.

Daniel will be creating sand sculptures during the Cashel Arts festival in September.

His recent works include an exhibition, with brothers Niall and Alan Magee, of three sculptures in Dublin Castle’s upper courtyard united by a single theme: “the bright side.”

The trio were hoping to create a positive image of Ireland. Sand holds a special place in Daniel's heart.

“It’s quite unique as an art form,” he says. “You can make a very large sculpture in a very short period of time. When people think of sand, they think of castles and mermaids they saw on a beach while on vacation. There are so many other possibilities.”

Cashel Arts Festival is a four day festival later this year, involving and encouraging visitors and the local community to participate in a wide variety of arts is key to the festival. Whether you want to sit back and be entertained or get ‘stuck in’ and learn something new, this festival will have something for you.
