Description

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." (description from information panel of Kiltimagh's sculpture trail).
