Bronze sculpture depicting a man from the 1960's reading the newspaper the Western Day. "Living in a small rural community can mean many things to many people. In the ordinary act of reading the newspaper the day-to-day events that make up daily life are remembered. In County Mayo, the Western newspaper provided a focus for people by recording the issues, events and concerns of the week. The sculpture... is an important part of the commemoration of Western Day."
