The Three Graces

Gabriel Hayes, 1943

Located on the building of the TU Dublin, Cathal Brugha Street, Dublin 1

The Three Graces, daughters of Zeus in the classical world, symbolise youth, mirth and elegance. Here the three female forms represent domestic chores, appropriate for the façade of St Mary’s College of Domestic Science, a college for “women’s work”, now TU Dublin’s Cathal Brugha Street campus.
