Abstract Maritime Sculpture on Grattan Quay in Waterford, Ireland

This abstract sculpture combines the links of an anchor with lines representing the River Suir and the waves of the open sea. On the top is a 17th century sailing ship. The work by Denis O’Connor is called Turas Seo Caite. This means the Last Trip. The tribute to Waterford’s maritime and industrial heritage was sponsored by the City Council’s Percent for Art Programme. It was erected along Grattan Quay in 2010.
