GARVAGHEY CENTRE, COUNTY TYRONE 

The Garvaghey Centre is a £7m facility and a resource that will both live up to what Tyrone GAA is about and help it further flourish and prosper.Garvaghey is a Tyrone Gaelic resource, facilitating all the Gaelic codes and cultural/heritage activities; for men and women, boys and girls; for Clubs and schools; and for the ordinary, the less ordinary and the extra-ordinary.Prior to opening of the centre in September 2013 Spires Art created & installed a collection of art pieces throughout the facility. The range of artwork in this project includes face mounted prints, box canvases, framed fused glass art piece, wall decals & a sandblasted centrepiece at the heart of the building known as 'An tOchtagán Ghloine' (The Glass Octagon).

A New Experience of Flavor

Coffee tastes have changed so much that I remember around 2012, introducing a much more acidic coffee into our blend thinking we were going to lead customers into a new experience of flavour, only to be dismayed on day one with customer’s dissatisfaction with a fruitier and more flavourful coffee. Coffee is after all the seed of a fruit. From then on, we began to work at a gradual pace, turning up the brightness a little, season after season. Today we can proudly craft a coffee with notes of lemon meringue, strawberry or passionfruit and find people on all sides of the counter are learning and developing their pallets.

Spires Art worked alongside Lairdesign to create a collection of box canvases which have been designed to fit together with one another like a jig-saw. The design & layout was created by Lairdesign, the box canvases where then manufactured & fitted by Spires Art.
