Conservation works to a long-overlooked part of St Stephen’s Green in Dublin are nearing completion.

The €300,000 project on the WB Yeats Memorial began last November.

Commissioned and managed by the Office of Public Works, the project has taken in the conservation of Henry Moore’s iconic ‘Knife Edge’ sculpture, as well as the restoration of surrounding paths, steps and terraces.

“The whole plaza was overgrown and the sculpture was very much hidden. So you couldn’t really see that there was even a Henry Moore in this part of the park. A lot of people never knew it was here,” said conservator Jason Ellis (top).
