If you are in Strokestown House and Woodland Park, Co. Roscommon during the Summer, be sure to check out the fantastic outdoor sculptures created by post primary students from the Midlands and Western region for Strokestown’s annual School’s Sculpture Competition.

This year’s theme is “Ireland, the Land of a Thousand Welcomes”. Visitors to Strokestown Park can stroll through the picturesque woodland walk and see the students’ sculptures which are dotted along the path. Visitors can then vote for their favourite piece on return to the reception desk.

Above is the entry from Ardscoil Phádraig, Granard, Co. Longford which is a giant wooden 8’x4′ mug of tea, complete with open half door. You can look inside the mug to see a little room with a table set for tea in typical Irish Country Style. And what would make you feel more welcome than a giant mug of tea…

Strokestown House and Woodland Walk is open to the public all Summer. Entry is free.
