37. The Sculpture

This bronze sculpture erected in 1994 depicts modern Tuam as a community looking outward into the world but embracing its history with Saint Jarlath’s wheel in the center. At the base are three motifs from the town’s Coat of Arms – the Crown of Tuam’s 12th century High Kings, Christ’s crown on the High Cross of Tuam and the broken chariot wheel of Saint Jarlath founder of the town and its diocese.
