The Famine memorial in the north eastern corner of Stephen’s Green [behind the Wolfe Tone statue]

What’s up with the Famine statue [by Edward Delaney] in Stephens Green? For the past six months it was closed off by barriers and fancy brick work was being put down around it. Noticed today that the barriers and bricks are gone. Wonder how much Dublin City Council wasted on this non-starter….
…I can confirm that as St Stephens Green has been designated a National Monument, an application is currently with DAHG seeking ministerial consent to re-pave the area around the Famine Sculpture. The works that you currently see there are samples chosen and the consent is awaited before any works commence and have been cordoned off for health and safety purposes…..
