THERE was excitement in Dungloe on Tuesday as Stor the Troll made his way to his new home.
Stor the Troll arrived safe and sound in Dungloe and has settled in to his new forever home at Trì Na Draíocht ( The land of Magic) on The Dungloe Riverwalk.
Stor left Newry on Tuesday morning and was escorted on his journey by Police and Gardai before arriving into Dungle and was greeted with a warm welcome by hundreds of locals.
Stor is one of the the main pieces to feature in ‘Trí na Draíochta’, a new children’s art and story trail at the Riverwalk in Dungloe.
The magical enchanted story walk is based on the adventures of Stor, a Norwegian Troll who travelled to Ireland in search of a mythical island but he got a bit lost and instead went to Dungloe.
Stor and his many mystical friends have embarked on many adventures across Donegal and indeed Ireland, and the walk features several high-quality professional art works created by Irish artists all carefully developed to be fully interactive for families.
The impressive piece was created by Sticky Finger Arts in Newry and is sure to be a major attraction for young and old.
A spokesperson for Sticky Finger Arts said, “Stor the Troll has arrived safe and sound to Dungloe and has settled in to his new forever home.
“Massive thank you to everyone who helped make his journey so memorable and got fully on board with the storyline.
“Most importantly a massive thank you to the people of Dungloe for the extraordinary welcome we received on arriving. A memory we will cherish forever.”
