Some 110 artists from all over Ireland have each designed three-foot fiber glass hares with the results scattered around Dublin city centre – all in aid of the Jack and Jill Foundation.
Of the Hares On The March initiative, Frank O’Dea writes:
“Twenty-five of the hares will be sold in a live auction on March 15, at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland [RCPI], Kildare Street, while the remaining 85 are currently available in an online auction here (closing for bids is March 21). These affordable unique pieces of art will help provide home nursing care to approximately 300 families nationwide with very sick children.”
Anyone else miss those giant hares that bestrode O’Connell St in Dublin like
They were class, wish they’d stayed there
The best one for me was Hare Lingus. https://galabid.com/auction/hares/item/63020 but you needed to see them up close.
It really was very entertaining and I hope they do it every year. My entry would have been March Hare – In Orange Man kit.
…ah hare…I suppose those CEO salaries aren’t going to pay themselves…
Hope they’re well-protected.
Remember how vandalized the cows got?
