Pikes and Doves - War and Peace

The Market Square is now almost complete. It has a light stone paving that gives it an open and spacious feel. The edges are stepped - no doubt intended for sitting on? Raised flower beds and a dramatic focal point complete the square. Pikes representing Castlebar's 1798 brush with war and the doves representing peace? Some photos taken on the 3rd July. (Hopefully traffic cones will be removed shortly and it will be forbidden to leave wheely bins on the square!)
