Gift of life sculpture, Botanic Gardens. This sculpture commemorates those who have given people a chance to live through organ donation.

In Botanic Gardens, in Belfast’s Queen’s Quarter, stands the Gift of Life sculpture commemorating those who have given people a chance to live through organ donation.

The candle-shaped memorial was placed in the Gardens in June 2016 and gifted to the city of Belfast by the Galway Civic Trust on behalf of the city of Galway

The sculpture was commissioned by Strange Boat Donor Foundation. This foundation was set up by Denis and Martina Goggin following the death of their son, Éamonn in a car accident in 2006. His organs were donated for transplantation.
