Tír Sáile, The North Mayo Sculpture Trail

Site D

Sculptor:

Alan Counihan "Tearmon na Gaoithe." Palmerstown Bridge

This is a vernacular sculpture born of its environment. The stone, quarried and thrown up by the waves, has been laid so as to form a shelter, a sanctuary, a place near the pulse of the tide, the breath of the winds. It belongs only here.

Location:

Take the Ballycastle road out of Killala and turn right at Palmerstown Bridge, turn right at the third crossroads and on past Kilcummin Pier and St. Cummin's Well, turn right and then left up the hill, continue straight down to Lacken Bay. At the end of the road turn right past site 'E', a short walk northwards along the shore is site 'D'.


The North Mayo Sculpture Trail begins in Ballina and follows the coastal route through Killala, Ballycastle, Belderrig, Belmullet and down to Blacksod.
