Sand Sculptures at Dublin Castle 2013 - Photographed By William Murphy I had become used to things getting better as time passed. Every year any given festival or event was bigger and better than the previous year but things have changed since for the worse since 2010 as the majority of events here in Dublin appear to be in decline and in my opinion many reached an all-time low this year. Today I visited the upper courtyard in Dublin Castle to see the sand sculpture exhibition by world renowned Duthain Dealbh (also known as Irish Sand Sculpture) and I was more than a little bit disappointed to see so little on display. I am not complaining about the quality of the work but the quantity. Only three large sand sculptures were on display and I have been informed that a fourth sculpture will be carved later in the month. Note:The works of art will be demolished on 29 August so final viewing for this exhibit will be 28 August.
