Four of my sculpture pieces feature at present in the Bloom In The Park garden festival. Three pieces together help tell the story of the change in Irish society from ‘Moving Statues to Marriage Equality’.
President Michael D Higgins and First Lady Sabina Higgins visit the garden at Bloom.
In the Enable Ireland Garden, designed by Linda McKeown, my sculpture ‘Oscar’ the hare hides in the grass while Michael D and Sabina view the garden.
What a delightful surprise when ‘the real‘ Cormac and Richard arrived at Bloom to view the sculpture of them in the Woodies Garden designed by Brian Burke, Super Garden winner. Cormac Gollogy and Richard Dowling, thank you.
The garden got much media attention, with over 20 pieces of photographic and video coverage in national media, this clip is from the Irish Independent.
The tree of hope stands at 2.1 meters, it is stoneware with porcelain over-layer. The leaves are porcelain with gold glaze.

I would love to see your garden if you are showing it anytime. My neighbour Jackie was with you yesterday and she was totally in awe of it.
Hi Jackie, Thanks so much. Yes, the garden is open by appointment through Sep and Oct. Easiest is to phone me on 087-9724271 to arrange a time that suits both. Yours, Conall
