Commemorative Art Ireland – John F Kennedy, Bruff, Co. Limeick
In May, 2019, a life-size statue of the late President of America, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was publicly unveiled in his ancestral home of Bruff Co. Limerick. It was unveiled by Mairead McGuniness, Vice President of the European Parliament. Seamus’ sculpted this over many months and cites it as one of his favourites. Seamus really lived and breathed the man himself during the process.
The JFJ statue is just one of many commemorative lifesize public works by the talented Seamus Connolly – sculpted and cast here in Kilbaha in Seamus’ own studios and foundry.
