Artist’s Statement:
Kildare County Council invited proposals for an appropriate sculpture for St.Patrick’s Terrace. Having had occasion to visit the former dark, gloomy and depressing dwellings known as ‘the Old Army Barracks’, quite simply, my heart lifted as soon as I walked in and saw the lovely new bright, light and attractive apartments. Hence, the name of the piece is ‘Raised Spirit’.
