Artist Kevin Vincenzo Keating, from Heber Road, has created Aine, who owned Aine’s Hill in County Kerry. and held midsummer revels when she took on a new identity as a Fairy Queen.

He said: “Cricklewood has a huge Irish heritage so I wanted to make something of that. By using a mythical subject the art can touch people and resonate with everybody in its own personal way.”

Aine is the latest piece of art commissioned by the Cricklewood Town Team (CTT) to transform the train station.

The station already boasts a red Cricklewood sign by sculptor Alistair Lambert, window art by Clem Norman, as well as photographic displays from Thomas Ball.

CTT is currently working with secondary and primary schools to install murals on the platforms each with a historical theme.”
