Here's why there are ducks appearing all over Bray

It’s all for Georgia Murphy.

IF YOU’VE BEEN around Bray this weekend, you may have noticed drawings of ducks sketched around the streets in chalk and wondered what on earth was going on.

The ducks are a tribute to Georgia Murphy, who died suddenly from an asthma attack last Sunday.

The campaign was set up for the teenager, who was nicknamed Duck, in an effort to raise funds for the Asthma Society of Ireland. Mourners at the 13-year-old’s funeral were given chalk and encouraged to sketch a duck and make a donation.


Since the campaign started last week, people have been taking to the streets of Bray and worldwide (photos have come in from the States and Australia) to sketch a duck in chalk in Georgia’s honour.
