Fittingly, It looks to be covered in blight.

There is another memorial in County Mayo, called "coffin ships" that looks interesting, too:

Reminds me of ANOTHER sculpture at Dachau, this one by Nandor Gild.

Man... the world is full of sculptures memorializing the horrible things that people have done to one another... Humanity can be a sorry bunch at times.

We certainly prove how inhumane we are.

We do or rather we can be. I'm depressed now... I think I'll go listen to Sinead O'Connor's version of Danny Boy... that's happy, cheery song, right?

There's a matching set in Toronto, as well, which I've never visited.
Also, the Dublin ones are lit up at night, not sure about the Toronto ones (personal shots from back when I lived there, in 2006):

Here are three photos of the same memorial that I took during one visit.
They included a dog in the mix: http://www.flickr.com/photos/koocheekoo/303177771/in/set-72157594386567348Photo of a handful of the statues: http://www.flickr.com/photos/koocheekoo/303191368/in/set-72157594386567348Statue detail, close up of one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/koocheekoo/303191371/in/set-72157594386567348
They weren't as yellow looking then. These photos were taken in 2006.
