Ernest Shackleton and Roald Amundsen Mural

Shackleton Museum

To mark the centenary of the death of Ernest Shackleton and the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen, a new mural by Eloise Gillow will be unveiled in Athy on Culture Night.

This mural celebrating their kinship will be prominently displayed in a public space, close to the Shackleton Museum. It will play tribute to their life achievements and draw attention to the role of the polar regions in our global climate concerns. In tandem with the Shackleton Museum, it will provide a focal point in the town. Come along and celebrate this local hero!
