I stumbled on this story, and thought it was wonderful!
Children (ages 8 to 13) in Ireland completed a spectacular yarn bombing project on Eyre Square. Inspired by their teacher, supported by their principal, and tutored by their family members, the kids were able to create 2086 patches to give the iconic sail sculpture a makeover.
The “bombing” took place on June 4, 2012. You can read more about it in the original newspaper article: http://galwayindependent.com/stories/item/2805/2012-25/No-more-plain-sailing
