At The Pier in Moville Inishowen

“The Fid” by Locky Morris
The artist’s design for the Moville sculpture The Fid looks to Moville’s maritime heritage for inspiration. Partly inspired by a fid, which is a tool used by fishermen for splicing ropes, the piece will stand over 30 feet high and over 3 feet wide at its base. Sited on the Old Pier, an emblem of Moville’s rich maritime heritage – the Anchor Line ticket Office for the emigration boats was there – and this work was part of a broader programme of events commemorating the region’s shared emigration heritage with New Brunswick, Canada.
