Scope and content

A view of the original statue of Saint Patrick on the Hill of Tara in County Meath in about 1945. This statue, attributed to the sculptor Thomas Curry (c.1821-1911), was erected in the late nineteenth century. The Office of Public Works (OPW) removed the statue for repair in 1992. During the removal the statue was damaged beyond repair and, afterwards, was further damaged by vandals. A replacement statue of Saint Patrick was unveiled (at a different location on the Hill of Tara) in 2000.
