<p>Early in 2018 the fire brigade responded to reports of a fire in Donnybrook’s Herbert Park but but park management were relieved that it was a disused shelter rather than the famous bandstand that was set alight by vandals.<br />
<br />
The bandstand, which was not damaged, featured in the video for Phil Lynott’s 1982 hit Old Town.<br />
<br />
I did try to photograph the old shelter in 2018 but could not because of anti-social behaviour so I was not surprised to learn that it had been set alight. I do have a photograph from 2014 which I will make available.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/infomatique/">infomatique</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Here is a comment that I made back in October 2015: &quot;People living near Herbert Park have been lobbying Dublin City Council for some time to fix it up. Last week, the council revealed its new draft plan to do that. Among other proposals, the Herbert Park Conservation and Management Plan suggests that the water fountain be restored to working order, and that the railings be refurbished. It also suggests that the trees be thinned, and the paths be given more definition.”<br />
<br />
Since then the park has change and while the fountain may have been restored [and I do like it] some elements have disappeared because of storm damage and anti-social activity.<br />

<p>About a year ago I came across a document explaining the idea behind this sculpture and unfortunately I cannot fine the document in question and I cannot fully remember in detail the content. The globe is the earth and it is treated like a football be men [males] ... it is abused.<br />
<br />
The spelling of the name appears to vary - Cliona, Cliodhna or Cliodna - but it would appear that the correct spelling is Cliodhna.<br />
<br />
Cliodhna Cussen was born and educated in Co. Limerick. She attended third level education in Dublin and Florence and is presently based in Dublin and Kerry. She works as a full-time sculptor using mostly bronze and stone. Cliodhna does graphic work in the Graphic Studio Dublin and she also illustrates and publishes Irish Children's Stories. She has exhibited widely and won a number ofawards for her work, including the Listowel Gold Medal for sculpture and the sculpture prize at the Oireachtas.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/infomatique/">infomatique</a> posted a photo:</p>
