Minister Jimmy Deenihan,  Liam  Ahern, of the Palace Bar,   Jarlath Dal,  sculptor.The centennial of the birth of Brian Ó Nualláin, or Flann O' Brien as he was better known, was celebrated on 5th October last, inside and outside The Palace Bar, in Fleet Street, in central Dublin. 

Minister of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Mr Jimmy Deenihan gave an unscripted, interesting, and entertaining speech before officially unveiling the bronze pavement installations.

The installations depict four great literary Irish figures: Patrick Kavanagh, Brendan Behan, Brian Ó Nualláin, and Con Houlihan.

Jarlath Daly is the artist who produced the casts.

The event was well attended by admirers, and in some cases, friends of Myles. Among the attendance were two well known Dubliners, Bertie Ahern, and newly appointed Senator, Eamon Coughlan.
