Metal figures alongside the Tullamore Bypass
Metal figures alongside the Tullamore Bypass
These are located north of the Arden Roundabout and on esker ridges that the new roadway cuts through. Here three of the four are visible. They are the work of sculptor Maurice Harron and feature Irish symbols of learning and sanctity. Of the three seen here the nearest figure holds up a crosier, the middle figure a book, the third a chalice. The 4th figure, out of the picture, shows the release of a flock of birds representing souls. N3427 : The remnant of an esker surmounted with a metal figure representing the release of souls
