The Faces I See--Cork Opera House

The mystery is solved. The faces on City Hall are part of a street art project entitled 'Our Nation's Sons' by Joseph Caslin. An exert from the Cork Culture Night pamphlet explains the project. "The large scale portraits give focus to Cork's young men and their challenges, but ultimately showcases their potential." 
On the same Tuesday that I discovered Our Nation's Sons, I also snapped shots of a new (to me) set of faces. The famous faces, painted in shades of blue and grey graffiti, are found along a narrow alley along the back side of the Cork Opera House.
