Brief Description

ACARD invites submissions from Artists to create a monument in honour of Daniel O’Connell. The commissioners wish to honour Daniel O’Connell in his native Cahersiveen by means of a public space/sculpture/monument. The scale and type of monument is not restricted and may be traditional or contemporary. It should not distract from the church building but rather enhance the overall view and streetscape of the location. The artwork should capture the imagination of the public and tourists alike and offer the opportunity for interaction and reflection and become an iconic “must see” monument on the famous Ring of Kerry route.
