LEAVY, MICHAEL

(fl. 1814-1840)

Sculptor

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born about 1787 and entered the Dublin Society's Schools in 1810, where he was a pupil of Edward Smyth. He displayed considerable talent, taking a number of prizes for drawing and modelling. He exhibited a bust in clay in Hawkins Street in 1814; but he does not appear to have subsequently achieved any success, and nothing more is heard of him except that in 1840, when he was living in North King Street, he was an unsuccessful candidate for the Mastership of the Dublin Society's Modelling School.
