By the way they have a brother ‘Beach Bear’ in Greystones county Wicklow. I you are aware of any other brothers or sisters please let me know an I will photograph them.
Patrick O'Reilly was born in 1957 in Kilkenny. At the age of 17 he studied at the Art College of Belfast, but left after on year. His giant bronze bears stand outside the 3Arena at the Point in Dublin and I really like them.
