Catalogue Note

The present bronze is the half size maquette relating to Pater and Ned in Sandyford Village, County Dublin and The Men of Iron in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It is inspired by a series of comic sketches on the late Gerry Ryan's RTE morning radio show. Sil, Pater and Ned would meet in the pub once a week to discuss the affairs of the day in their own inimitable and comical way.
