Art Installation ‘seals’ the peace between Irish Writers

The two Irish writers who shared the same apartment during a period of their lives, but who ended up and never speaking again. They “return to talk” in this tribute made in Dublin by the pub that bears the name of one of them: Oliver St. John Gogarty. The poet, senator, surgeon, cyclist and medallist of the 1924 summer Olympics in Paris (literature), sits at ease on the bench. It was observed by James Joyce. They studied at Trinity College and did have the same address in Sandycove (Martello Tower, Dublin) when Joyce started writing Ulysses. Gogarty is the inspiration for the character Buck Mulligan.

A misunderstanding ended the friendship, and many years later Oliver moved to the United States, where he died in 1957, at the age of 63.

With this beautiful tribute the peace making was sealed for the up coming generations. Such a beautiful and inspiring installation.
