"With no hero courageous tomb
Just a canal bank seat for the passerby."......Patrick Kavanagh
I think of Kavanagh when I see these memorial seats in Ballybunion.
I learned from the Ballybunion Tidy Towns page that putting memorial plaques on seats is an initiative of Kerry County Council. If you would like to have your loves one commemorated on a seat all you have to do is contact Kerry County Council and they'll tell you all about it.
On April 21 2018, I spotted this magnificent creation. I zoomed in closer and I think that is Ballybunion's own Pixie O'Gorman I see putting the finishing touches to this sand installation.
My good friend, Cathy Healy has been on to me again. The man stroking the dog is not Liam Healy. He is his brother, Mike Healy. The lady with the curlers in is Mary Corridan and the little boy is one of the Bunyan family.
