Description
Bronze statue set on a granite plinth, dated 2000, erected to celebrate the millennium. Prominently-sited to the east end of Mullingar at the junction of Austin Friars Street and MacCurtain Street and at the east end of Pearse Street.

Appraisal

A rare piece of public art in Westmeath. Well-cast in bronze, this figurative statue adds interest to a prominent site to the east side of Mullingar. It depicts two medieval monks about to depart on a pilgrimage. It is located close to the site of a former Augustinian Friary (WM019-053---), recently excavated, and the inspiration behind this piece.
