Please sign this petition if you are against the proposed alterations to Fitzwilliam Square, Wicklow (The Smoothing Iron) by Wicklow Town Council/National Transport Authority.
The proposed alterations include changing the location of the Halpin monument, removal of the railings, paving over the grassed area with granite slabs and replacing the current lighting with modern type lighting. The proposed changes will see Fitzwilliam Square transformed into the way the Market Square looks today.
If Wicklow Town Council wish to spend any money on The Smoothing Iron, it should be to repair the many cracks that currently exist in the surrounding wall. No other changes or alterations are required, as the monument is perfect as it is, and a proud part of Wicklow Town's heritage.
Do you really want The Smoothing Iron to look the same way as Market Square does today?
If not, please sign this petition and make all your family and friends, both in Wicklow Town and those abroad who are originally from Wicklow Town, aware of this petition.
