HEALING HANDS BY TONY O’MALLEY [BY TONY O’MALLEY]

The Healing Hands is a hollow bronze hand patterned sphere containing an eternal flame and supported on a squat tree-trunk style pedestal. It was erected in 2000 to celebrate the third millennium of the birth of Christ. This sculpture is intended to symbolise the healing ministry of Christ which continues through the care of the staff of the neighbouring Mater Hospital which was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1861.
