Thomas Moore

Thomas Moore

On the eastern edge of the Pond is the dignified bronze bust of Thomas Moore. Moore was hugely popular in his day as a Romantic poet, lyricist, musician, satirist, and biographer. He was considered the national bard of early 19th-century Ireland.

This memorial was commissioned by the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, a group of citizens of Irish descent, and sculpted by Dennis Sheahan. The sculpture was unveiled in 1880 on the 101st anniversary of Moore’s birth.
