Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

This is one of our most popular street art pieces and we were delighted when it went viral on social media especially among the Nigerian community in Ireland.

The text reads 'Every Fela Is Welcome in Cork'. Fela Kuti was an Nigerian musician who was outspoken about the effects of British colonialism in his country and the governments that followed. He also made some pure daycint choons and has a small but strong fanbase here on Leeisde!
