Dun Laoghaire Sculpture
Public sculpture, especially if it is not a "statue" is sure to upset a number of people. Thankfully we have seen a great increase in the number of public sculpture around the country many, also thankfully, the causes of controversy. If no-one objects then there must be something wrong - public art should be controversial.
The Gateway sculpture in steel by Michael Warren at Dun Laoghaire has been removed at least for a time. There are those who would not like it returned. Anyone who attended the Dun Laoghaire Poetry Now Festival has seen the work and Poetry Ireland used it on the cover of their recent issue which featured some of the Dun Laoghaire poetry performers.
