VIKING LONGBOAT SCULPTURE ON ESSEX QUAY
The immediate area is a bit run down at the moment because many of the nearby shops and restaurants are closed or have been closed for an extended period.
This piece of public art by Betty Newman, representing a Viking Boat, was created by Dublin Corporation on Essex Quay in 1988 because a Viking long ship was found at Wood Quay during archaeological investigations for the Civic Offices, which was used for a foundation for a jetty or wharf. The piece reflects area’s Viking history.
