”The Big Freeze” – A snowy start to 2010

Sligo, as most of Ireland, has been experiencing it’s coldest snap for quite some time. Last week it even meant some Model staff couldn’t make it in to the office, but thanks to broadband and emails we still had a busy week staying in touch, and even busier week ahead as we prepare for the exciting reopening of The Model later this spring.

The snow didn’t stop two artists (Maebh Cheasty and David Murphy) reaching us all the way from Cork (thank you irish rail) for a research trip to Sligo to kick start the audio-tour project they will be working on for us throughout the spring.

During the cold spell we also took out our cameras and managed to snap some great shots around Sligo. Tourism rumours for Sligo in 2010 have been flagging the county as a new ski- destination.
