Matrimony Tree

Cod Steaks was commissioned by Donegal and Strabane District Councils to design and build two public art pieces for the HEART Sculpture Trail in Ireland. Following detailed research and consultation with local people.

The Matrimony Tree immortalises a local legend and celebrates the historic relationship between Ballybofey and neighbouring Stranorlar. Featuring foundry-cast handprints from the youngest and oldest pupils of each of the five primary schools in the area, the Matrimony Tree is a symbol of unity and friendship and has been hand-built entirely in steel.
