Sculpture beside the River Liffey (courtesy [copyright] Sue Haddad)
Sue Haddad's picture illustrates the new sculptures near the Customs House and Financial Centre. I am most grateful to Sam Chapman (Florida, USA) for telling me that they represent figures from the Great Irish Famine. Sam recommends that you see them close up; they are most moving and impressive. NEW
A well-known sculptor friend of ours informed us that one of his latest works was being positioned in a green area/park near our house. We expressed interest and then suggested that we could give it a wipe every now and then to keep it looking good! To our amazement he failed to see the humour and told us that we would have to approach the local authority for permission!
