Thank You For The Shades


Vera Klute’s controversial statue of Luke Kelly was vandalised yesterday afternoon

This morning.

Sheriff Street, Dublin 1.

All you need is a bit of turps, for pity’s sake.

    Torn between ‘Vandals Out!’ and Luke with shades being such a visual improvement.

    Scorn not my Duplicity.

    …will be great company for those other spurned monuments – the hoor in the sewer and the millenium clock…a hideous carbuncle…

    Bob Ross without his paint brushes?

    I’m all for paying tribute to Luke Kelly, but this statue is awful with or without vandals

    The sculpture is fantastic and already fixed. Response from the community to this has been strong so hopefully will deter future vandals.

    have any of the people complaining about the statue been down to see it. I was skeptical but it looks great in situ, and is much better than the more traditional one down by the Gaiety.

      Agreed, I wasn’t gone on it at first but it’s grown on me.

      I read what you wrote as “I was skeptical but it looks great so stfu, and is much better than the more traditional one down by the Gaiety.”
      (and I was nodding in agreement)

    This is why you don’t get to have anything nice. Scumbags.

    Granted, it’s a fairly awful looking sculpture but just train your scoby spawn to leave things alone.
