Conor Cronin tragically died while fundraising earlier this month.
Artist Maser and singer-songwriter Damien Dempsey have joined forces once again to create a new original artwork, entitled Meet Me At The Bridge. The piece was inspired by a conversation between the two creatives about mental health – and has been brought to life on Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin, in tribute to the Movember campaigner Conor Cronin, who died earlier this month.
Created as part of Movember and Huskies' Conversations Piece campaign, the piece features Dempsey's words and Maser's iconic design illuminated on the bridge.
"We saw the Beckett Bridge as a half way point where two sides of the city are joined together and beat as one," Maser says. "Very much like a conversation and particularly one about mental health, we wanted to encourage people to talk more and also to listen. To meet halfway and to empathise - a conversation takes two and can make all the difference."
Maser and Dempsey have dedicated the artwork to Conor Cronin, who tragically died while he was fundraising for Movember earlier this month.
"We were devastated to learn of Conor’s accident," says Movember's Jack O'Connor. "Conor was a passionate Mo Bro, devoted to improving the lives of men who are suffering from the most pressing health issues. Our deepest condolences go to his friends, girlfriend and family. By dedicating this artwork in his name we hope to shine light on his selfless work."
This month has seen a record number of people getting involved in the Movember Ireland campaign – which raises funds for men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
