Tommy Craggs’ Tree Sculpture

Last week we went to see a tree sculpture by Tommy Craggs. It is situated at the north-east corner of St. Anne’s Park and at the crossroads that lead to Bull Island. Tommy was commissioned by Dublin City Council to create this sculpture out of a sick Monterey Cypress tree that was one of the oldest trees in the park. Tommy used a chainsaw to create this amazing masterpiece. He took inspiration from the nature reserve of Bull Island.

We all loved this wonderful work of art. It is a great example of how reusing something can help make the world a more beautiful place.

This was a nice thing to go and see to help celebrate National Tree Week 2017.

Before we headed back, we took some time out to sit and enjoy the lovely weather.
