Regret at death of sculptor Peter Hodnett

The death of the late Peter Hodnett was raised at Wexford County Council as votes of sympathy were passed to bereaved families.

The sculptor's passing was raised by Cllr Jim Moore who felt it was a sad loss to the artistic community.

Cllr George Lawlor agreed.

And he pointed out that well known pieces by the deceased are on show without any reference to the man who created them.

The Labour man led calls for a full acknowledgement to be put in place beside either 'Eternal Flame' in New Ross or 'Men of Iron' in Wexford.
