Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford hurling stars back Capital of Culture bid

Walter Walsh attempts some art in the video 

Three well-known GAA hurling stars from opposing teams have joined forces for a creative video in support of Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford's joint bid to be named 2020 European Capital of Culture.

Waterford centre-back and All-Star winner Kevin Moran; Wexford full-forward Liam Óg McGovern; and Kilkenny corner-forward Walter Walsh all star in the clip to promote the bid as the cities join together as the Three Sisters.
 
In the first part of the video, Kevin Moran and Liam Óg McGovern swap jerseys for tuxedos to perform on stage at the National Opera House in Wexford. Walter Walsh is then shown watching the sporting pair, inspiring him to get behind an easel for his own artistic endeavours at Grennan Mill Craft School, Thomastown, Co Kilkenny.
 
The video was produced by John Bermingham of Waterford-based All That Can Be Productions. It was directed by, and also stars, Wexford native Mick D'Arcy, lead singer with well-known folk band Corner Boy.
