This painted cow is part of Derry’s Cow Parade in Ebrington Square, Derry.

Each of the cows in the parade was painted by a different artist. Each artist was paired with a community group and worked with them to identify a theme.

This one is the Commonwealth Youth Summit cow. It was inspired by Irish and Scottish dance. The artist involved was Amy Murray.


The Cow Parade is said to be the largest participative art project in the world. Having been seen by 300m people world-wide it certainly has a claim to that title! In fact there are many cow parades.

The organisers provide plain white fiberglass cows – mostly in three characteristic stances – and artists and community groups in a local area come together to decorate their cow in a way that highlights a locally relevant theme.


There are twelve, or more of these cows in Ebrington Square and a few others scattered around Derry.


Ebrington Square was formerly Ebrington Army Barracks. Under the guidance of Ilex (the local Urban Regeneration Company) it has been transformed into a public open space. You can see Derry City centre in the distance across the river.
