Brian-Boru-And-The-Vikings---Jennifer-Farly

To commemorate the town of Swords connection with the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf and the death of Brian Boru, Fingal County Council organised a weekend of activities in the town of Swords itself that included a night time torch-light parade to mark the funeral procession and handing over of Brian’s body to the delegation from Armagh.

I was commissioned to create the illustrations and graphic design work on a set of three large 2m x 1m corriboards – telling the story of the Vikings arrival, the battle at Clontarf and Brian’s removal to the tower in Swords. I illustrated a series of posters showing some of the main characters involved in the Battle of Clontarf in 1014 – Brian Boru, Wolf the Quarrelsome and Sitric Silkenbeard. The promotional materials also included a very large 6m x 1.2m PVC banner and a DL trifold brochure.
