Tír Sáile, The North Mayo Sculpture Trail

Site H

Sculptor:

Fritse Rind, "Battling Forces" Downpatrick Head.

This is a place where strong elements - sea, storm, land - give continuous battle to man and to each other. The 30 m long sculpture gives form to a frozen moment in an ongoing struggle between two forces of a different nature.

Location:

Take the Downpatrick Head Road out of Ballycastle past Tom Langan Park. Follow the signpost to Downpatrick Head until you almost reach the car park. On the sea side of the road is site 'H'.


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