Baltimore Sea Memorial

Baltimore, Rath and the Islands Community Council has acquired planning permission to erect a memorial in memory of those lost to the sea. The profile picture shows an artist's sketch of Croí na Mara (Heart of the Sea). "Croí na Mara", a sculpture of copper, bronze and stainless steel, is a collaborative work between the Community Council and two local artists, Helen Walsh and Paddy McCormack.  The artist’s sketch shows that the structure, made up of two waves (measuring 3mH x 2mL x 3mW), aims to reflect and capture the power and energy of the sea. Further detail shows the parting sea forming two copper and bronze perforated waves rising from the ground into the shape of a heart. Copper rings of varying sizes, representing the souls lost to the sea, are drawn up through the heartstrings and released into the air. .  The structure will be located adjacent to the Harbour Building overlooking Baltimore pier and harbour. The aim is for this area to be as inclusive as possible for people of all abilities to come and take the opportunity to reflect, contemplate and remember friends and loved ones by looking at and through the heart shaped space between the waves, to the water in the harbour and beyond.
