Thought you should know. Walking to work this morning and saw that the ‘Disband the Artane Boys Band’ installation in Temple Bar had literally been covered up. The irony…


Last night the protective netting that I placed on the site at Exchange Street was torn down deliberately. This netting was to allow us to put up a new response to Pope Francis’s visit.

This temp piece of work (above) sends out a clear message and is in keeping with the 15-year project that we have been working on on this site.

You are all welcome to visit the site today as we will be erecting the new piece at 9am this morning and we hope to be finished by this afternoon.

I appreciate the concerns of people who thought that someone was covering up ‘Somebody’s Child’ work and Disband the Artane Band panels
