Ann Hugh

Ann was born in Dublin in 1952 and is a graduate of NCAD. She currently resides in Kells, Co. Meath.

She has been working as a full time professional sculptor since 1989, and has been commissioned to do many public sculptures. She works in bronze, stainless steel, stone and ceramic. She believes in Public Art and its discourse with people. She thinks that Art should provoke a reaction and that the people who are going to live around and with the piece should have an input into its development.

There is a wide range of Ann’s Sculptures here in Loughcrew and our Alice in wonderland themed garden is based on Ann’s sculptures.

There are also beautiful works of Irish history and spiritual creativity around the gardens to admire too.


In 2016 Ann created some fairies and goblins for the gardens.
