I also have a wide angle image of this golden cow with some people.

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

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

The cow in this photograph was created by Lumin Christi College. They named it “Let’s Mooooooove Ahead Together”. On its back is an abstract depiction of the “Cityside” and “Waterside” parts of Derry joined by the new Peace Bridge. It was painted by artist Sinead Smyth.

Ebrington Square was formerly the parade ground of Ebrington Army Barracks. Under the guidance of Ilex (the local Urban Regeneration Company) the parade ground has been transformed into a public open space. Gradually the buildings around it are being renovated and finding new uses.


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.
