The Blackrock Dolmen, by Rowan Gillespie, depicts three elegantly elongated figures holding up a large capstone to symbolise the essence of Blackrock. The figures – two male and one female – are of cast bronze, whilst the capstone is of lighter, resin bronze on fibreglass and is in the typical triangular form of a dolmen. The sculpture will be well known to anyone who has driven past Blackrock as it is located on Temple Road, next to the Blackrock by-pass.
