Wolfe Tone is still in place although the large expanse in ront of him looks a little bleak. I hope that the fountain at the Davis memorial will finally be truned on…its quite an attractive feature although unfortunately very few people get to appreciate the statue stuck as it is on a traffic island. I think some lighting of the monument would be welcome as well. I presume the fact that the monument is boarded up means that major works as going on. They were originally scheduled for completion in Spring 2005 but I think the fountain’s plumbing proved more problematic than expected.
I have to say I like both these monuments….they were both put in place in 1966 to mark the anniversary of the Easter Rising. Its interesting how much ‘monument building’ went on that year….G of Rememberence, all those plaques, various statues.
