Waterford - sculptures

I spent last Wednesday morning in Waterford city, having a meander around the quays and Viking Triangle historic area. I stopped to have a look at this bronze memorial to the youngest soldier (aged 14) killed in WW1 created by Pat Cunningham.


The John Condon Memorial has a beautiful contrast between a textured & patinated exterior and a highly polished interior.


Also bronze, this amusing sculpture, "The Marriage of Strongbow & Aoife". was created by Eithne Ring.


At the roundabout to the quay parking lot, was this sculpture of a tall ship by Cork artist Denis O'Connor. The ship is on stilts so is raised above the roundabout and can be easily seen by traffic and pedestrians alike.


At the quayside, abstract concrete sails tower over the Millenium Plaza, designed by William Vincent Wallace.
