A wonderful mural in tribute to Carrie Fisher has just popped up in Dublin

It’s our girl Leia.

LAST MONTH, FILM fans were rocked by the passing of Carrie Fisher and, one day later, her mother Debbie Reynolds.

A tribute to the Star Wars actress has sprung up overnight on the streets of Dublin – the side of the old Barley Mow pub on Francis Street is now home to a mural of Princess Leia.

The mural was painted by the street artist FiNK, who appears to have been inspired by Fisher, his ‘first crush’:

FiNK has been painting this corner for quite some time now – the Francis Street-facing side is currently adorned with another Star Wars-themed mural…

…And this collaboration with fellow artist Kevin Bohan went up on the Marks Alley side just before Christmas.

You can stay updated on FiNK’s creations on his Instagram here – and of course, by keeping your eyes peeled around Dublin.
