“Punctuating the national routes, an eclectic selection of work appears. On the M7, Dan Georges Race of the Black Pig is a series of shapes that resolve into the form of a St Bridget’s Cross as you pass. Probably even more effective, however, is the landscaping around the Portlaoise bypass section sequenced planting of Norway maple, red and yellow dogwood, larch and spindle creates bands of colour that remain magnificent in all seasons and lift the spirit.”
