St Stephen’s Green Park
St Stephen’s Green Park is a historical park and garden, located in the centre of Dublin city.
Cared for by the Office of Public Works, the park is an important public resource in the area, and provides an oasis of green calm in the middle of a bustling city. Its four centuries of history are eventful and complex, involving such important figures as Arthur Guinness, 1st Baron Ardilaun, and Countess Constance Markievicz. The park itself hosts a large number of important sculptural monuments to Irish history. Many species of birds and plants also call the park their home. Public facilities at St Stephen’s Green Park include a playground and a garden for the visually impaired.
A new major photographic exhibition, by Michael St Maur Sheil, will be on display in St Stephen’s Green Park from the 9th of September 2016, for seven weeks.
A unique portrait of the First World War battlefields, Fields of Battle – Lands of Peace 14-18 is a powerful outdoor photographic exhibition, by Michael St Maur Sheil, which tells of the healed scars of the First World War through our only remaining living witness: the fields of battle themselves.
