THE world’s largest public art exhibition of life-sized cows are grazing in Derry.
The life-sized animals have been herded into the Derry Visitor and Convention Bureau grassland to mark the ten-day Clipper Homecoming Festival which began on Friday.
The cows will then ‘moove’ onto Belfast, Omagh, Bangor, Warrenpoint, Armagh, Enniskillen and Downpatrick and NITB is encouraging people in Derry to be the first to greet the cows.
NITB’s ni2012/13 manager Siobhán McGuigan is thrilled that NITB is part of the Cow Parade. “We decided to get involved in the Cow Parade as 2012 is such a momentous year for Northern Ireland.”
More than 70 cities across the globe have hosted a Cow Parade since 1999 but this is the first time it has come to Northern Ireland as well as the first time it will take over an entire region rather than just one city.
