MALAHIDE AUGUST 2023
Today when I visited Malahide I came across an number of wood sculptures and I assumed that they were by the well known Richie Clarke but when I checked on Google Maps they are shown as being by Simon Donnelly. Unfortunately I cannot locate any information relation to Simon Donnelly. There is a Simon Donnelly who is a static and kinetic sculptor based in Dublin and he may be a member of Visual Artists Ireland.
