Joe Dolan Statue on the move for reinforcement

Visitors to Market Square Mullingar may have noticed that the Joe Dolan statue is gone - disappeared!

However, he will be back, stronger than ever and hopefully sooner rather than later. "It became loose as a consequence of people literally getting up on the statue" according to Westmeath County Council chairman Michael Dollard.

Erected in 2008, the statue has been a huge draw with people from all over the world visiting and having their photos taken beside the great man. However it seems that some have been over-zealous in their movements around the statue, to the extent that it has become loose and the repair works have become necessary.
