A MARIAN STATUE DATING FROM 1953

A MARIAN STATUE DATING FROM 1953

According to a local source this is properly known as the ‘Queen Of Peace’ statue.

I am sure that not many people are aware of this “Marian Statue” beside the old Broadstone Station. Because of its colour [ or should I say lack of colour] it is not very visible from the road. There was a narrow walkway behind it and steps leading up from the street below but access is currently blocked.

This statue at Broadstone is a bit unusual in that it was erected in 1953 by railway and bus workers of CIE, a state transport company, on company property. I do not know who maintains the installation but it is in good condition. In any photographs that I have seen it appears to be painted white but in my photographs it appears to be unpainted concrete.
