STATUE AT THE END OF THE JETTY AT DUN LAOGHAIRE BATHS
14 September 2021 in Dún Laoghaire the Roger Casement Statue was lifted into place at the end of the new jetty at the Dún Laoghaire Baths project, which was still under construction. The statue was commissioned by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and commemorates Casement who was born in Sandycove in 1864, became an early international human rights campaigner and who was executed for his part in the 1916 Rising.
Speaking at the arrival of the sculpture to the site, An Cathaoirleach Lettie McCarthy, said: “I am delighted to see this sculpture of Roger Casement being lifted into place. It is a remarkable piece that will undoubtably become a focal point of interest. Its arrival also marks further progress on the redevelopment of the Dún Laoghaire Baths area.”
