The Pigs are on Parade ...!!!

& the hunt is on ... 100 unique pigs painted by artists and designers from all around Ireland are on display now around Dublin City centre for the next 5 weeks. I am thrilled that my pig 'Golditrots' is part of this fabulous public arts initiative and fundraising campaign organised by the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.

 Introducing Golditrots ...

 Here are a few shots of Golditrots from the professional photo shoot just before the pigs were placed in their Dublin city centre location. 


Fun for all ... Find the Pigs ... 

Jack & Jill are inviting people to find the fantastically designed ‘Pigs on Parade’ that have been created by the talented artists from around the country, with a chance to win lots of fantastic prizes.

Each pig will have a code – so the challenge is to find 20 different pigs, keep a record of each code & enter the competition.

'Pigs on Parade' free booklets and entry forms for the 'Find the Pigs competition' are available in Dublin City Centre location such as St. Stephens Green Shopping Centre, Trinity College, Arnotts, Jervis Shopping Centre, Dublin Castle, Brooks Hotel, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Avoca, Hugh Lane Gallery, National Gallery of Ireland and Chester Beatty library and via  and through Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation. 

You could own your own Pig ... Bid for one online ...

There is no question that the Pigs are and will be a real subject of conversation with pretty much everyone who comes into contact with them.  In owning a unique and original piece of art like one of the pigs there is not only the satisfaction of having a striking piece of art but there will also be a particular satisfaction to know that the money spent on the art has gone to support a really good cause. 

All the Pigs are being auctioned off now online at and all the proceeds go to the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.

Here is a link to the Auction page .. 'Golditrots' is #65 ... don't hold back .. remember it's all for a good cause ... !!

Stay tuned for updates over the next few weeks while the Pigs are on Parade in Dublin. 

Good luck to all the Pigs .. !!!
