Bronze statue of a female figure, dated 1937. Set on a marble plinth on this site in 1995.


This bronze figure of a female onion seller by sculptor Seamus Murphy makes a notable and positive addition to the streetscape. Born in Cork county, Murphy studied in Cork and Paris and later became Professor of Sculpture at the Royal Hibernian Academy. This small scale figure is of apparent artistic design and clearly demonstrates the sculptor's talent. Formerly located in Bishop Lucey Park on the Grand Parade, it was moved to this location in 1995.
