Oranmore resident Fergal Costello was awarded second prize in the furniture category at the RDS crafts competition. He also received the Duff-Tisdall award for innovative design and construction, which came along with a €500 cash prize. Costello’s winning entry, Tree chair, was the product of more than 200 hours of design and craft work. The chair was exhibited in the RDS during the Dublin Horse Show, and will be travelling around the country with the exhibition for the rest of the year.
Costello has just established Fergal Costello, Design and Make, a woodworking company which specialises in hand crafted furniture. From his workshop in Tuam, he will produce original designs on a one off and batch basis.
