Public Sculptures

In addition to their work in preserving Ireland’s existing architectural heritage the engineering department of C.S. Pringle have assisted in projects, both public and private, designed to add to this heritage.

One example is the statue entitled Dancing at the Crossroads by the artist David Annand.  This was a public sculpture commissioned by the County Council in conjunction with the NRA. It celebrated one of Patrick Kavanagh’s  poems (Dancing with Kitty Stobling) and was intended to be a thought-provoking tribute to the poet that would be visible on the Carrickmacross Bypass section of the N2. To aid visibility and in keeping with the spirit of the poem, (...cavorting on mile-high stilts...) the dancers were on placed on stilts by the sculptor.  The structural frame upon which the statues were built was designed by our engineers, together with the foundations, so that a safe, durable and aesthetically in keeping with the intent of the artist was produced.
