Healing Hands

"Healing Hands" is a limestone sculpture by artist Shane Gilmore, installed in May 2008 on the grounds of Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, at 62 O'Connell Street in Ennis, Clare, Ireland.

The open human hands personify five human ideals, described on plaques on the stone wall base of the sculpture; Hands of Welcome, Hands of Peace, Hands of Cooperation, Hands of Healing and Hands of Faith.

The sixth plaque inscribed with the following inspirational verse from the Bible, invites further contemplation: “I will not forget you, I have carved your name on the palm of my hand” Isaiah 49:15.
