Ireland – Ennis – Centurial Sphere 1916 Memorial

Located next to the 1966 memorial which marked the fiftieth anniversary of the Easter 1916 uprising is this artwork which marks the one hundredth anniversary.

The sculpture is known as the Centurial Sphere and was commissioned by Clare County Council. It was designed by Paddy Murray and is made of galvanised steel. The text on the sphere is from songs about County Clare and its cultural heritage.
