A man, and his man made raft arrive on the River Barrow this afternoon

A Dublin based artist will arrive in Carlow this afternoon – on a man made raft.

Fergal McCarthy has hand built a raft from Plastic bottles that he pulled out of the Grand Canal in Dublin – along with recycled wooden pellets.

He left Dublin on the raft on Monday morning, and will arrive on the River Barrow in Carlow around 1 o clock this afternoon.

He’s spent the week camping on the canal, as he made his way towards Carlow.

Fergal is well known for constructing a man made desert Island and living on the River Liffey during the banking crisis.

He travelled 8 kilometres each day, and 10 kilometres on a good day.

This is all part of a new project for the Visual arts centre in Carlow, which is opening in July.
