SORRY FOR THE DELAY
Universal Links on Human Rights is a memorial sculpture located on the traffic Island at the junction of Amiens Street and Memorial Road, close to Busáras and The Customs House. It is a sphere of welded interlinked chains and bars, 260cm in diameter, housing an eternal flame powered by natural gas from Kinsale. This sculpture was commissioned by Amnesty International in 1995. It represents the jails around the world holding prisoners of conscience.
