Mitchelstown Sundial

In 2001 the Mitchelstown Heritage Society commissioned 'Timepiece' - a large limestone seat and analematic sundial sculpture (five metres major axis). The time is indicated by the direction of the shadow of a person who stands with his/her feet astride the centre line of the Calendar scale, on the appropriate date of the month.
The impressive sculpture was widely acclaimed as the most unusual and interesting sculpture erected in Ireland in 2001.
