Plans for Terry Wogan’s commemorative statue have been revealed, exactly one year after his death. The broadcaster passed away in his UK home in 2016 after a battle with cancer.
Mayor of Limerick, Kieran O’Hanlon confirmed that the statue is set to be erected in the broadcasters beloved home county of Limerick, and will feature Sir Terry sitting on a bench with a microphone in his hand.
Speaking to the Limerick leader Councillor O’Hanlon said, “Sir Terry was loved and adored throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and never forgot where he came from.
“He was a wonderful ambassador for Ireland and Limerick. He was proud to be from Limerick, and to be an Irishman in Britain at a time when it was hard, during the IRA bombings.
“I have spoken to his family about the plans and will be in consultation with them again over the coming weeks.”
