Michael Cusack Statue – A National Sporting Hero is Honoured
At McKeon Stone, we are very pleased to be associated with a new tribute to a hero of the sporting world. Michael Cusack (Mícheál Ó Cíosóg), the founder of the Gaelic Athletic Association, is being commemorated with a statue carved from our beautiful Kilkenny Blue Limestone, which will stand at the entrance to Cusack Park in Ennis, County Clare. The Park is the home of the Clare Gaelic Athletic Association.
