Fountain Unveiled in Newmarket


'The Clare People - 15.05/2007'

A FOCAL point for the village of Newmarket-on-Fergus has been erected in the shape of a piece of sculpture.

Sculptor Michael McTigue was commissioned to assemble a piece of black granite, featuring a statue of a woman - Caitlín of the Weir, who lived in the area in the past - sitting on a wall.

The seven-sided piece, which cost E18,000, represents the seven parishes in Newmarket-on-Fergus, with a fountain in the middle. The entire cost of the project is E34,000. It has been made with the name Cora Chaitlín, the Irish for Newmarket-on-Fergus, in mind.

Part of the piece of art has been put in place and the remainder will be in by the end of the month. Standing over seven feet tall, it is located in the carpark in front of the church.

"This has been in the pipeline for the best part of the year. When completed, it will feature a fountain and lighting," said Mr. McTigue.
