In Greek mythology, Daedalus translates to “cunning worker,” was known as a skilled craftsman and artisan.  It was told that Daedalus constructed the labyrinth for King Minos, in order to imprison his wife’s son, the Minotaur.

Standing at the base of Killiney hill, this copper statue of Daedalus stands to welcome those coming to visit.  Time and weather has given the statue a great blue-green tint.
