Description

Items related to the 'Muc in for Hospice' initiative. The project was developed from an idea by Gavin Friday and artist Laurent Mellet. 'Muc' was an 8 foot flying pig that stood at the entrance to Dublin airport's terminal building for many years. Muc was used as the symbol for the 'Muc in for Hospice' campaign. The campaign involved a series of events to raise funds for the development of hospice care for sick children.
On 'Muc day' on April 1 2004 primary school children were encouraged to wear their Muc faces to school and secondary school children asked to have a 'mobile phone switch off day' to raise funds.
