Completed in 1999, the four sculptures were designed with a celebration of the River Shannon as the theme. The sculptures feature the people, animals and birds that use the river, and also depicted the 13th century Bishop O’Duffy and St. Adhamhnán. The artist, Cliodhna Cussen states that ‘the design of the sculptures has evocations of the great oak trees that covered Uibh Fhaílí long ago and of the stone sculpted crosses and abbeys of the Shannon Region’. Three similar sculptures stand in the Library Square.
