FLAGPOLES AND SCULPTURE AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE UNIVERSITY OF LIMERICK CAMPUS – THE WALL OF LIGHT IS BY SEAN SCULLY
The large scale sculpture features a wall of black and white cut stone basalt and limestone blocks as well as two huge timber clad flagpoles on deep foundations.
The wall is known as’Crann Saoilse’ (2003) or the ‘Wall Of Light’.
The UL campus is truly one of the most beautiful university campuses anywhere in the world. Visitors never fail to be impressed by this peaceful green place with its trees, its fountains and the beautiful river Shannon flowing majestically through it all.
Recently the university confirmed that a new city centre campus will open by 2022 – likely at the €180m Project Opera development at Patrick Street – and will host 2,000 students and 100 staff.
