This statue represents Fr. Tom Burke who was a Dominican preacher. Fr. Burke was known as the ‘Prince of the Preachers’ for his work done in the USA at the end of the nineteenth century. 

The sculpture, by Seán Kavanagh, is testament to the work done by Fr. Burke, along with being a physical reminder of the area’s social and religious history.
