THE GARDENER - ANOTHER ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BRONZE BEARS
Patrick O’Reilly is famous for his large bronze teddy bears and this is a new addition to his collection however his bears have resulted in a claim that Dublin City Council is biased towards the Southside of the city at the expense of the Northside as demonstrated by the sculpture trail it promoted.
The Patrick O’Reilly Sculpture Trail featured 12 life-size works at six locations but five were South of the River Liffey. The trail begins in the premises of Gormleys Fine Art on South Frederick Street [South of the river], and continues to Merrion Square Park, the Merrion Hotel, St Stephen’s Green, Grafton Street and then Capel Street which is slightly North of the river.
