Vacant site, Belfast
The space formerly occupied by three buoys outside Ulster University in Belfast (see shared description below). They were removed a few days ago to, I believe, The Commissioners of Irish Lights for repainting back into their original colours; they will then be brought back to Belfast and resited close to the Abercorn Basin.
The Buoys, Titanic Quarter, Belfast

The buoys stood outside the Art College, (part of the University of Ulster), at the corner of Donegall Street and York Street. When erected in 1979 they were quite a novelty and included jets of water squirting from below. Time (and various elements of aerosol society) has not treated them well. The jets of water are no more. They were a gift from the Commissioners of Irish Lights.

Subsequently moved to the Titanic Quarter.
