Project 45’


Project 45’ is an exhibition of artwork made by the 4th class students from St Vincent’s GNS, William Street North. 2019 marks 45 years since restoration began on The Royal Canal. Its potential as a recreational, educational and ecological amenity was recognised. In a rapidly changing environment, the exhibition presents a vision of The Royal Canal over the next 45 years.

The students worked on 5 projects:
St Vincent’s School Boat
Royal Canal Annual Birthday Party & Festival
Entertainment Boat
Annual Canoe Race
Luxury Spa & Restaurant




Designed and faciliated by Sarah Flynn in collaboration with 5 Lamps Arts Festival, Royal Canal Amenity Group and Fighting Words.
