Shrigley ..Co Down, Northern Ireland (pop.456, c2001)..claims to fame ..once had the biggest linen mill in Ireland. Hans Sloane, the inventor of drinking chocolate and all round scientist.. was born ..just up the road!
But now Shrigley is famous once more, for here resides ..The Shrigley Wag!.
I stumbled across this masterpiece while on my way home from a family Christmas Day 2012. Armed with just a little Nikon s3100 I was able to record the beginnings of the Shrigley Wag’s career.
Move over David Shrigley there is a young pretender on the block .. a real Shrigleyite!
