Yoko Ono was awarded a lifetime achievement at the Mansion House in Dublin .

Artist Yoko Ono was awarded a lifetime achievement at the Mansion House in Dublin as part of the Dublin Biennial Pop-Up contemporary art exhibition.

The peace activist received an Irish bogwood sculpture by Kieran Higgins, according to Newstalk.

"John, who sometimes considered himself 100 percent Irish, would have loved to see me honored in this way by the city he loved,” said Ono, according to the Irish Times.

“When he was born, his mother was English and his father was Irish and he didn’t have too much opportunity to see his father, so he had this yearning for being Irish. In a way it was sad because he was always talking about that, you know.”
