Ladbrokes has teamed up with acclaimed international sand artist Sean Corcoran to create a striking sand portrait of first-time Best Actor nominee Colin Farrell ahead of the 95th Oscars this Sunday, March 12.

The sand portrait of the Dublin actor was installed on Keem Bay, Achill, Co Mayo, the beach which has become globally recognizable from scenes in the Oscar-nominated "The Banshees of Inisherin," in which Farrell stars alongside fellow Academy Award nominees Brendan Gleeson, Barry Keoghan, and Kerry Condon.

Ladbrokes noted that there is widespread excitement across Ireland this week ahead of the Oscars with Ireland nominated in a record 14 categories and this portrait seeks to represent the rich support among the Irish nation for Colin Farrell, "The Banshees of Inisherin," and all other Irish Oscar nominees.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “We are delighted to have collaborated with the very talented Sean Corcoran on this incredible sand art installation to show our support for Colin Farrell, ‘The Banshees of Inisherin,’ and indeed all Irish nominees ahead of the Oscars this weekend. 

“I think I speak for the entire nation when I say we are immensely proud and firmly behind our native stars for Oscar glory. Here’s to a great night for the Irish in Hollywood!”
