The Impaling of Cows

Sacred cow impaled on the altar of senseless vandalism

“Tain-ya”, the multi-coloured
life sized paint cow, has become the latest victim of the wanton vandalism
that is becoming an epidemic in Dundalk.


“Tain-ya” was donated by the
Naughton Foundation as part of a sculpture park in Ice-House Park only a few
weeks back, but went missing, only to be found impaled on a fence, damaged
and an attempt made to set to work of art on fire.
