The Centurial Sphere
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Uprising.
1916 - the Easter Uprising took place in Dublin in April of that year and was the beginning of the end of 750 years of British rule for most of Ireland.
The Sphere carries lines from poems and songs about and from different parts of County Clare celebrating the county's cultural tradition, a tradition cherished by the men and women of 1916.
My personal favorite is the line that reads, "It's a long long way from Clare to here."
The Centurial Sphere sits on the banks of the River Fergus and across the street from the Ennis Friary.
