“It has to be the Doctor Who theme tune, made by Delia Derbyshire.”

Sculptor Aidan Harte and his Púca of Ennistymon, county Clare


This morning.

Further to Clare County Council’s decision to ‘pause’ plans to install a €30,000 statue of a mythical half-man, half horse…

…Via The Times:

The Púca of Ennistymon sculpture should be put up in the capital if the people of Clare oppose the artwork due to superstitions, Dublin city councillors have said.

The artist behind the work told The Times that he would prefer it to be erected in the Clare town, but would be open to it being moved elsewhere if locals rejected it.
