ANOTHER RED METAL YOKE AT NEWTOWN AVENUE SEAPOINT
I am not sure if one describes Newtown Avenue as being located in Blackrock or Seapoint.
Up until I have referred to this type of sculpture as “red metal things” but someone suggested that “red metal yokes” might be a better description. Anyway, ever town, village and location within the island of Ireland appears to have an anomalous metal sculpture painted red … I have seen a few yellow ones and one green one in Blackrock in Cork.
Let me know if there is one near you.
In Irish slang, the word ‘yoke’ doesn’t have anything to do with eggs. Instead, it’s another way of saying ‘thing’. So if someone in Ireland sees an object that they’ve never seen before, they might ask, ‘What’s that yoke there?
