The Martin McBrearty Chair

As part of the Donegal Stone Festival in 2015, the stone chair, carved in Kilkenny sandstone by mason Christian Helling and dedicated to the memory of Kilcar stonemason Martin McBrearty.
“It has taken me a year to find this perfect stone,” said Christian Helling. “It is given in memory of Martin McBrearty, a founding group member who recently passed away. They say as long as someone‚Äôs remembered they never leave us so I carved his name in to the arms of the large chair and now when visitors sit and read his name he is always remembered.”
