Commemorative Commission
Wicklow County Council
Bray Town Council

15th April 2013

Artists are being invited to submit a proposal for a site specific sculpture at location Fr Colahan Terrace in Bray Co Wicklow. The commission is for a permanent external site – based work which is commemorative in nature.

The focus of the commission is to commemorate the lives of two firemen who lost their lives during their work with the Fire Service. The aim of the commission is to provide the family and extended community in the area with an outlet for expression and remembrance, which can enhance the public facility where it is placed. The preference would be for the development of a piece, which would allow people a contemplative space in which to reflect.

The Fire Service forms a vital component of Local Authority Services, with the focus of saving lives and protecting public safety at its core. The dedicated personnel provide an important emergency response function as well as participating in vital education and awareness raising for example in our primary schools supporting fire prevention.

The site proposed for the location of the work is at the heart of a community facility in the park in Bray.
