A renowned American artist is considering issuing legal proceedings against Louth County Council after an image that appears to be based on his artwork has been included in the new World War 1 memorial in Dundalk.

The image of soldiers leaving for the battlefield is very similar to that  in a major commission by sculptor Sabin Howard for the National War Memorial  which is due to be erected in Washington DC in 2024. When completed, the 65-foot-long bas relief will be the largest bronze sculpture of its kind in the world.
