Cork Stone Featured in Clocha na hÉireann – The Stones of Ireland Monument

Victor Daly’s carving of County Cork has taken pride of place on a new national monument

Victor was very proud to represent Cork as the carver of the county’s stone for the ‘Clocha na hÉireann’ or ‘Stones of Ireland’ monument erected in Glencolmcille in Donegal. The monument is a map of Ireland made up from individual pieces of stone carved by people from each of the counties of Ireland.

The project was commissioned to commemorate the centenary of 1916, and it celebrates the crafstmanship and tradition represented by stone carvers from across the island of Ireland.

The monument, which is located opposite the Glencolmcille Folk Park, as part of the Tirconnell Folk Festival 2016.

I am a stone carver with over 20 years of experience in stone-carving, restoration and abstract sculpture, working only with traditional chisel and mallet techniques. I accept a wide range of commissions, and deliver stone-carving courses here at my workshop on the Sheep's Head peninsula in West Cork.
