Olympic athlete murals in Dublin and Cork in support of Team Ireland at the Tokyo Olympics

With the world getting ready for the highly anticipated Olympic Games in Tokyo, Team Ireland partner and job site, Indeed, has revealed three hero Irish athlete murals in Dublin and Cork City.

The three murals are of Team Ireland athletes and Indeed ambassadors, Rhys McClenaghan – gymnast, Natalya Coyle – Modern Pentathlete, and Sanita Puspure – Rower, and aim to encourage everyone to get behind Team Ireland and show support in what has been the most difficult lead up to an Olympic Games to date.

The large-scale public artwork series is a colourful expression of Irish creativity and sporting success, amplifying the importance of our nation’s athletes.

The artist created an appearance of being in continual flux, alive with the energy of movement, colour and balance to harness the Team Ireland athletes unleashing their talent. Indeed commissioned Subset to produce the murals which were designed and created by Irish artist, Sufek West.

Irish gymnast and Indeed ambassador Rhys McClenaghan said; “It’s great to have the support of Indeed on this journey. For the first time in history, we can’t have the support of our family, friends or the home crowd at the Olympics, which creates a different competition environment. It’s great to see so much support though from home. I was so excited to see the Indeed mural being unveiled in Dublin’s city centre as a symbol of that support. I’m determined to unleash my talent on the global stage at Tokyo and further inspire the younger generation of Irish gymnasts”

 The three Indeed ambassador athlete murals can be viewed in the following locations:

  1. Rhys McClenaghan, Gymnast – Dublin, Camden Row, D08 H294
  2. Natalie Coyle, Modern Pentathlon – Dublin, Essex Street, D02P598
  3. Sanita Puspure, Rower – Cork, Victoria Road, T12 YW6T

Daniel Corcoran, Vice President of Strategy and Operations at Indeed said: “The postponement and unknown of the Games has made it an exceptionally difficult year for our elite athletes who dedicate their lives to their chosen sport and have had to mentally prepare for the biggest competition in their sporting careers.

“We are extremely proud to be supporting Team Ireland and hope these murals reflect that. We are encouraging everyone across Ireland to show their support for these incredible athletes as we watch them unleash their talent on the global stage this summer.”

Indeed partnered with the Olympic Federation of Ireland (OFI) in April 2019 to become a sponsor of Team Ireland for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics through its campaign #TalentUnleashed.

The company  supports three Team Ireland ambassadors, as well as the wider team: first time Olympic hopeful, gymnast Rhys McClenaghan, two-time Olympic Pentathlete Natalya Coyle and reigning two-time world championship gold medallist, Sanita Puspure.
