The Dancers

Untitled_Panorama1

 

The Dancers by Antoinette Fleming is a bronze statue situated in a  small pocket park at the junction of Greenhills Road and Main Street in Tallaght. The two bronze figures, linking arms in a dance swing, stand on a circular base.  It was installed in 1988 and is part of the Katherine Tynan Memorial Plot under the Village Improvement Scheme, in honour of the novelist and poet Katharine Tynan who lived at Whitehall, near Tallaght.. The park was officially opened by President Mary Robinson. You can read more about Katherine Tynan in previous posts HERE and HERE and even HERE

    I love these statues, they have similar around my town too.

    Have you ever been to see the Peter Pan statue in Kensington Gardens?

  2. Great pictures, Ed. I love the circular path too, it makes me want to twirl around with them.

    Love that pocket park … the stone, the flowers, the statue. I need to find time to read about K. Tynan.

  5. Such a beautiful statue to have at this memorial site!
