A modern 1994 limestone and granite decorative analemmatic sundial 7m in diameter by Michael Cunningham at Kellehers Buildings, Old Youghal Road, Cork. It is consists of a central limestone 'table of dates' panel with the months of the year, signs of the zodiac and the sun's rays carved on it. The surrounding area is built with granite sets. 300mm diameter limestone hour numerals are placed around the scale of dates. The sundial functions when, with the sun shining, someone stands on the central panel at the current date. Their shadow points to the hour numeral, thus telling the time.
