48. A new start – Let the Dance Begin (The Tinnies), 1999.
After nearly 30 years, a way forward was agreed and new institutions put in place. This large sculpture, between Lifford and Strabane was erected to commemorate the millennium but it also reflects hope based upon a respect for diversity. The musicians are from the two main traditions in the region and a nearby plaque explains that they ‘represent a shared cultural vision in an area where music and dance are great unifying and highly popular art forms.’
