And now the Film by Cathy Fitzgerald
Finally I did the book for “Cherries for Cherryorchard”. I was very pleased with the quality. Thanks to Cathy for constructive criticism and editing/proof reading. Thanks to Jeremy Hill for writing a lovely piece about my work.
The Book can be viewed and bought at
The Cherries have weathered the initial storm of attention from the local youth and seemed to have settled in!
The “Cherries” are located on the east side of Enniscorthy at Cluain Charman (Cherryorchard Phsae II) but, it is also signed Gort na Greine. Take road to Jamestown from the town centre (Ross Road/Carley’s Bridge Road) and turn right at the first roundabout. You’ll see the “Cherries” on your right as you head into the estate. See the map below.
While I was away on a well deserved holiday Tim (of Boro Landscapes) and his lads (Aiden, Rory, Thomas, Paul and James) planted the cherry trees, spread the grit and topsoiled and seeded around the sculpture. So, now its completed and installed, the young and the odd cat of the area have taken an interest in it.
On Thursday 17th June 2010, the cherries were loaded onto a lorry and transported to their final destination, Cherry Orchard housing scheme in Enniscorthy, Co Wexford.

In place, but final landscaping to be done. Thanks to Pat Rooney of Carlow Precast for the move and to Tim Harrington and the lads of Boro Landscapes for the groundworks.
