The Tower, is a 12 metre art sculpture, in the park next to the River Blackwater. The Tower was commissioned by the Office of Public Works (OPW) to mark the completion of their flood relief scheme. Th Tower takes its influence from the tradition of rowing in the town and a three-piece clinker-style boat that was used in competitions around Ireland in the 1960s and ‘70s. The sculpture was designed by James L Hayes who is a contemporary visual artist and leturur in Fine Art Sculpture at the CIT Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork.
