At the launch of Jungle City Clonakilty were Ivan McCutchen and Jean O’Sullivan (WCDP) with Peter Madden from Sustainable Clonakilty and young fans of Jungle City, Luke, Matthew and Ben Humphreys.

AS the wild and brightly painted animal sculptures of Jungle City settle into Clonakilty, West Cork Development Partnership (WCDP) is acknowledged and thanked for providing funding for the unique attraction.

Jungle City is proudly supported by WCDP under the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013.

Tourism Development Officer Jean O’Sullivan said, “WCDP is delighted to be providing financial assistance to this innovative project.

“It is a great example of a partnership approach between the community and local business. For visitors to Clonakilty the jungle animals will highlight features of this beautiful town and bring a sense of fun, local pride and global awareness.”

Mary Powys of Jungle City added, “We are hugely grateful to the West Cork Development Partnership for making Jungle City possible.”

Derek Dillon of Jungle City said, “Quite simply without the West Cork Development Partnership, Jungle City Clonakilty would still be on the drawing board. They are the lynch pin and we are grateful for their vision and imagination in bringing this colourful attraction to Clonakilty”.

Jungle City also partners with local charity Sustainable Clonakilty and conservation NGO Elephant Family to bring the unique attraction to Clonakilty.

Jungle City is a collection of 30 life-sized, brightly painted animal sculptures now permanently installed in every nook and cranny of the West Cork town.

Visitors to Clonakilty are set for a wild and colourful jungle experience with elements of adventure, art, conservation and fun.
