A few weeks before my three day visit to Limerick a statue of Terry Wogan was unveiled. However there was a serious problem because the statue looked nothing like the late broadcaster. And the people of Limerick are twice unhappy because they also dislike the stone memorial to Munster rugby player and coach Anthony Foley which was recently unveiled on Clancy Strand across the river from Terry [I will publish some photographs within the next few days]
This statue is going to attract lots of Terry’s fans from England and they are all going to be horrified because it looks nothing like their hero at any stage in his life. One local told me that it looks like Terry if you look at it from a mile away but I am not convinced. I actually spoke to a couple from England and they were a bit confused and wondered if there was another Terry Wogan that they were unaware of.
