Green's Bridge Sundial
Many thanks to Terence Cunningham for these photos

A Monumental Sundial entitled     X and O (Arch and Sundial)    in the garden beside Green's Bridge in the City of Kilkenny. An Chomhairle Ealaion commisioned artist Brian King to mark the success of Kilkenny in the Tidy Towns competition in 1985. A nearby plaque tells the user how to read the sundial and how to convert sun time to watch time.
The Arabic hour numerals are carved into the seats of the pinic stools.

Lat 52° 39' North    Long 7° 15' West

If you know the location of a sundial in Ireland (NOT a mass produced DIY Store garden ornament) please email it to me (Click here to email M.J.Harley) - a member of British Sundial Society
