The story of ‘Brave Maeve’ the giant is illustrated on a trail of images along Bray seafront. The story follows a young giant adventurer called Maeve as she sets out to find a home for her people and battles many monsters along the way.
This new Bray Mythology was written and illustrated by Chris Judge with the help of 50 local Wicklow children who between them, devised this exciting story in workshops in Killruddery House and Signal Arts Centre in September 2017.
People can travel along the trail using a special map and read the story together with their family or simply use their imaginations and create their own adventure with Maeve and the creatures she meets. The story is told in a number of brightly coloured murals in various spots along the seafront.
You can travel along the trail using the map and read the story together with your family or use your imaginations and create your own adventure with Maeve and the creatures she meets.
The full story is available as a free PDF with an accompanying map which can be downloaded here, view it below or you can pick up a physical map on the children’s menu at Platform Pizza on Bray seafront.
Share your photos on the trail using the hashtag #BraveMaeveStoryTrail.
The project was curated by Donna Carroll and funded by Platform Pizza, Bray Municipal District, Megazyme & Bray Credit Union. The beautiful murals were painted by the team in Triskill.
