Sculptor

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Fifth son of Terence Farrell (q.v.), was born in 1834. He studied in the Schools of the Royal Dublin Society, and afterwards worked in his father's studio.

He assisted his brother Thomas in the execution of the Memorial to Archbishop Murray; the figure of "Prudence" at the base is his work. Soon afterwards he contracted fever, of which he died in 1855. He was buried in the cemetery at Golden Bridge.
