The P**** with the Stick

imag6269

This statue of James Joyce stands on Earl Street in central Dublin, on the north side of the Liffey, close to the junction with O’Connell Street and opposite the Millennium Spire.

It took a bit of digging to find out that the sculptor was Marjorie Fitzgibbon who was born in 1930 in Reno, Nevada in the USA. Trained as an actress,  during a trip to Greece she fell in love with art and  sculpture. She moved to Ireland in the 1960s

Locals have a rather rude rhyming name for it (as they do for a number of other sculptures around the city).
