Roadside Sculptures 'Saints and Scholars' Tullamore Bypass.

These four sculptures represent Offalys monastic past and are five metres in height (thats 16 and a half feet)and are built on a mound of the same height. The weather was pretty bad when I took these, but gave  a nice backdrop.

Spooky, in a Wicker Man kind of way. Eerie.

yeah the first time I saw them I thought they were a bit pagan and one of them a bit demonic looking regardless of what they represent. ie they would not be the 'good guys' in any tv show or movie :P

Absolutely not. You want them on your side!
