Statue to the Boys of St Pats (Day 40 photo A Day 2012)

This statue is in the grounds of Saint Patrick’s Primary School Dungannon. It was placed there by the school principal Mary Hampsey to commemorate the lives of two pupils of the school Cian Corrigan and Ryan Pearson. Ryan died in a drowning accident in 2000 while on a family holiday he was only five years old while Cian passed away in May 2009, aged 11 years, from a rare spinal cord tumour. The statue forms the centre piece of a small memorial garden.
