About this memory

Mother and Child Statue by Thomas W Whalen which was originally positioned outside the Anti-Natal Clinic on the North Side.
Somewhat controversial at the time, the statue was eventually moved many years later to its present position in the inner quadrangle.

Thanks to Susan Begbie for the photo
