The Gaelic Chieftain sculpture on the N4 road between Sligo and Carrick-on-Shannon

The Gaelic Chieftain is one Ireland’s most beautiful road-side sculptures. Overlooking the site of the Battle of the Curlew Pass near Boyle, this attractive piece of metal is located on the N4 bypass between Boyle and Sligo,only few meters away from Co.Sligo border.

Just off the National road N4, adjacent to the sculpture is a picnic area, where one can sit and take in the magnificent views over Lough Key.Few wooden picnic benches are there to sit and eat.

Even just to sit and watch the views of the beautiful lake( Lough Key),the busy N4 traffic moving both directions and the spectacular surrounding scenery itself is worth.

Unfortunately no bins provided by the county council,so bring your rubbing with you.

Metallic Chieftain

Nice statue, beautigul scenery around it. It is also advertised as a viewing point, for this it is not the most ideal place due to the high grasses and plants. But nontheless a very nice trip

Don’t Miss This

If you’re traveling on N61, you should definitely stop to visit this sculpture. Although I would have preferred a less-abstract work honoring Red Hugh O’Donnell, there is something very appealing about this. Viewed from different angles, it offers a chance to appreciate the beauty of the sculpture and the surrounding area. You might want to read about the Battle of Curlew Pass before you visit. I was disappointed in how disrespectful people can be when I saw the graffiti written on the sculpture itself.
