Library Gets Irish Limestone Archway

Arizonans can enjoy their own little piece of Ireland – 22 tons of it – at the new Irish library downtown.


Francis McCormack, a master stonemason from County Clare, Ireland, has traveled to Phoenix to install a 22-ton Irish limestone archway modeled after a 13th-century archway found preserved on Holy Island in Ireland. The arch marks one of the final touches on the $3.5 million McClelland Irish Library, modeled to look like a small castle.
