IRELAND IS full of creatives: writers, poets, film-makers, artists of tradition and modernity and everything in between.
This art can be found across the Emerald Isle, in books and in films, splashed on to the walls of cities or illuminating the Cliffs of Moher, and sometimes a group comes together to create something absolutely enthralling.
Last weekend, as Ireland basked under the sun and warm temperatures, one artist took to the coast to show off his skills and encourage people to keep discovering the country's natural beauty as the public prepare to spend another summer 'Staycationing'.
Séan Corcoran teamed up with Irish tourist company Discover Ireland, to create an absolutely breath-taking depiction of our beautiful country using nothing but the sand and the strand as his easel.
In a project which took more than 6 hours, Séan took to the sand with a stick, creating an 11-stories-long, 220-feet-wide artwork of the island of Ireland, starting with the outline and the border before using intricate Celtic symbols to fill the artwork in.
The result has to be seen to be believed, as a video from Discover Ireland, taken by a drone, shows the scale of the portrait beside the cliffs and clear crystal waters of the coast, with a simple message of encouragement: Keep Discovering.
While the sea has washed away the incredible work, you can watch the video of Séan's process, as well as the wonderful finished product, below.
