Daniel O’Connell Statue, Dublin

Daniel O’Connell Statue in the 1800s, notice Nelson’s Column and the GPO in the background

The Statue of Daniel O’Connell was unveiled in 1882 to honour the political leader, also known as “the Emancipator” and “the Liberator”.

At the base of the statue are four winged ‘victories’ representing courage, fidelity, patriotism and eloquence; virtues attributed to O’Connell. If you look closely you can see some bullet holes from the 1916 rising.
