I was wondering about which piece of public art is the most ridiculous in Ireland. I would like to nominate the Crown in Larne. Commissioned for the jubilee of the British Queen it sits in the middle of Circular Road roundabout.

Wasn't there a busted sofa which had been bronzed and dropped in a housing estate in Louth which the residents hated but the artist said that was theirproblem -they just didn't appreciate art.

That's fairly minging alright. For me the worst is the Spire. Utterly uninspiring. The time in the slime was also useless and I note Smurfits Anna Livia has been secreted to a little used park near Collins Barracks. They even took her bath tub away making her look more ridiculous than before which is some achievement.

In all Eu funded road projects there is a budget for "public art".


Most of this are risible concoctions of ironmongery.

I think the artists are laughing at the plebs


It would be better to use the money to plant some trees

All the weird bits by the roads, so distracting trying to work out exactly what they are.

All we need by the road are signs that are included in the rules of the road not blue and yellow cow shapes.

The spire. I used to say that it should be removed now I think a plaque should be placed on it dedicating it to FF and the recession.
