June 13th 2015 is the 150th Anniversary of the birth of WB Yeats, one of Ireland’s greatest ever poets and writers. There are countless events taking place to commemorate his life and work throughout Ireland but particularly in Dublin and Sligo, places with which he was very closely associated. But there are numerous commemorations occurring internationally from Singapore to New York.
Here are just a few public artworks from various locations in Ireland commissioned to remember his great legacy.
