Another Brick In The Wall

e3s2-pic-1-editFive tonnes of the Berlin Wall are to be sent to Lismore Castle Gardens and Gallery for an exhibition which will remind viewers of one of the most significant episodes of European history in recent years.

Two sections of the historic wall measuring 3m 60cm x 1m 20cm and weighing 2.5 tonnes arrived in the gardens this week, transported by lorry from Berlin. The wall was bought by current castle custodians Lord and Lady Burlington on a trip to Berlin in 2014.

Segments of the wall have travelled all over the world and can be found in locations such as Washington, Los Angeles, Sydney, Vatican City and now Lismore.

Lismore Castle Gardens, which is now the new home for this significant piece of history, extends over seven acres and will be open seven days a week from 10.30am-4.30pm from April 3rd to September 30th 2015. The beautiful gardens of Lismore Castle are set within the 17th century outer defensive walls and are most well known for there large collection of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolia as well as working kitchen garden. A number of contemporary sculptures including work by Eilis O’Connell, Antony Gormley and Richard Wright can also be found throughout the gardens.
