Local children and artists created the ‘Sweet Water Arch’ which is located near the Stranmillis Roundabout.

The sculpture’s name, Sweet Water Arch, is derived from the Irish for the area — ‘An Srúthan Milís’ (sweet stream).


in December 2009 the Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Naomi Long, said: “What I love about this sculpture is that it really captures the essence of Stranmillis — from theatrical connections with the Lyric, to Charles Lanyon’s impressive architecture of Stranmillis College, to the flow of the river itself and the trowel which represents the famous Annadale brickworks.”

Denis O’Connor hails from Cork and with his partner Bernie Rutter they together form ‘Sculpture Works’ based in Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Children from three local schools worked with the artists to help design the piece.
