Tipperary Sundial

As part of their 10 year anniversary in Ireland celebrations, Boston Scientific created a seating area in Clonmel. The focal point of the arrangement is a modern stainless steel horizontal sundial designed by Piers Nicholson and made by his company Spot-on Sundials The dial sits on a roughly hewn block of limestone with a Gaelige and Ogham inscription on one smoothed face. "Tada gan iarraċt" is an old Irish proverb translated as "Nothing, without effort" and in Ogham lettering is the name of the company "Boston Scientific". Ogham is the earliest known form of Gaelige writing used from the 4th to the 8th Century.

Clonmel is 35 Kms south east of Tipperary Town on the N24 road.
