W.B. Yeats Statue

This original, unusual statue of Ireland's national poet William Butler Yeats was unveiled by his son in 1989 to mark the 50th anniversary of the writer's death.

  • It is located in Stephen Street, Sligo, in front of the Ulster Bank.
  • Fashioned by Irish sculptor sculptor Rohan Gillespie, the statue is distinctive for billowing shape, and its engravings of excerpts from some of Yeats's best-known poems.
  • In 2005, the Yeats statue was demolished by a drunk driver who failed to stop for police. It was later restored again and returned to its original site.
