About Victor Daly

Victor Daly sculptor

Victor is a time served stone-cutter, with over 20 years’ experience of stone-working in Ireland and abroad

As well as working on projects such as headstone design and abstract sculpture, Victor has been involved in landmark projects to conserve and restore St. Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh, and Barryscourt Castle in Co. Cork.  

He has worked extensively with stone conservation groups such as Historic Scotland in the UK, and the Office of Public Works here in Ireland.

During his time in Scotland he completed a National Progression Award in masonry conservation, and he is a member of the Sculpture Society of Ireland, the Crafts Council of Ireland, and the Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland.

He established his home and workshop in West Cork in 2010 after returning to Ireland from overseas. West Cork has always held a fascination for artists and craftspeople, and the quality of light and materials here is second to none. Victor is affiliated to the West Cork Arts Centre as one of the professional artist members.

As well as working on commissions, Victor pursues a hobby in abstract sculpture in his spare time. He also gains great satisfaction from passing on stone-working skills and techniques to others through the stone-cutting courses and letter-cutting workshops he offers.
