THE POOR COW LOOKS LONELY AND IGNORED BUT SHE SHOULD RETURN HOME SOON
Ag Crú na Gréine “Enjoying the Sun” (2003) by Jackie McKenna
This bronze sculpture of a cow has been moved to Wood Quay while Wolfe Tone Park it being redeveloped and while this may be a more pleasant location I would prefer to have it at Wolfe Tone Park as it has been very popular with local children.
