‘Horse and Rid­ers’ to get a new sta­ble in Mal­low

Irish Examiner - County - - News - Seán O’Rior­dan

An iconic sculp­ture, which stood for two decades at the cen­tre of one of the busiest round­abouts in Co Cork, is to be moved to a new home.

The sculp­ture by Michael Quane stood in the cen­tre of the round­about at Annabella, Mal­low.

It had to be moved as the round­about was re­duced in size to pro­vide ex­tra car­riage­way space to ease traf­fic grid­lock into the fu­ture, pri­mar­ily be­cause of the ex­pan­sion of Dairy­gold’s busi­ness, which would gen­er­ate sig­nif­i­cant ad­di­tional truck move­ments.

County coun­cil of­fi­cials have said the statue has been cleaned up and will be placed shortly at a new site.

It has been de­cided to lo­cate it on the south­ern side of the main bridge cross­ing the River Black­wa­ter on the N20 (main Cork-Lim­er­ick road) as it will be highly vis­i­ble there to pass­ing traf­fic.
