    I like this guy. By the way this is to go up on TOP after planning permission is granted. By way of explaining scale. :D

    I don't see any problem with this, after all had St Patrick not gone a Reeking in the first place then Western Civilisation could not have started off could it. :D

    Story Here. Fair play, can we bring it up one brick at a time then???

    I thought is was a statue of the man himself....

    I think it is a great idea if so.

    Pity I won't ever get to see it if it comes to fruition......:(.......it's kinda a long way up!

    Another feckin Bertie bowl! The idea of that mountain is that we praise god by climbing it not by sitting around in Starbucks at the top looking at a monument.

    I once heard a man tell a woman it was a Bureau de Change with a small shop attached for drinks etc. on the top when she asked what was the building was she could see through the binoculars.....(yes, she believed him, no, she was not American.....:eek:)

    I can see your point f-l but it would be a lovely sight to see ("from a distance" in my case) imo! :)

    It is, that is part of the coolness of it all though.

    The aircraft warning beacon should be 40 shades of green as well. :D

    Mental looking thing! Can't see it ever happening!

    A thread in Infrastructure for a sculpture to be placed on top of a Catholic site of pilgrimage. Only in Ireland:p

    Then again, according to the sculptor "we are all Christians here in the west". Give generously in other words!

    I'm sure the mods'll be happy to lock this one up on the day that's in it so. :D

    Speaking to The Mayo News yesterday, Timothy Schmalz said: “I have decided not to continue to build the world’s largest Saint Patrick on the Reek, as I have received so much hateful opposition to a project in which I intended to celebrate Irish culture and spirituality.
