A gentleman, who turned out to be a scrap dealer, asked me what I thought of this and then suggested that it was "real art". Also he liked the two horses located nearby. Personally I like Corten steel works of art but when I first saw this many years ago I was not 100% sure that it was not a skip or dumpster.
This is a 1954 Marian Statue erected by the locals, across the road from Our Lady Queen Of Peace church, and it may be of better quality than most and as you can see from my photographs it is very well maintained.
The Redemptorist Church at Mount St. Alphonsus, South Circular Road, Limerick is more than 150 years old. It is open twelve hours every day so it is more accessible than most churches in Ireland and it is well worth a visit and if you do visit you will have plenty of time to view it.
On the right of the door of the church, there is a Mission Cross donated by the Drapers Assistants in memory of the Mission to Men. This mission was preached in the church in January 1868. Above the door of the church there is a statue of Our Lord surrounded by angels. On the gable wall of the monastery, there is a statue of St Patrick, which was sculpted by Patrick Pearse's father.”
This mural of the lead singer of The Cranberries was created in November 2019 as the result of a collaboration between the urban art festival Draw Out and the Dublin street artist Aches to celebrate influential women from Limerick.
