Cooley legend – Cuchulainn

Additional Winners Trophy

With the year that’s in it, and the fact that Cuchulainn is the Legend of all ‘Cooley Legends’ , it was decided to present this bronze statue of the legendary Irish hero Cuchulainn, by Irish sculptor Oliver Sheppard, being a memorial to the participants of the 1916 rising.
the legend relates that when mortally wounded in battle, Cuchulainn tied himself to a pillar so that he might face his enemies, even in death. Only when a raven perched on his shoulder did they dare to approach.
This memorial was unveiled at the GPO, Dublin, on Easter Sunday, 21st April, 1935. Inscribed underneath are the names of the seven signatories of the proclamation of the Irish Republic.image
