Photographer's Note

The O'Connell monument is a landmark of Dublin.
Built to commemorate the “liberator” Daniel O’Connell after whom the street was renamed after independence. The monument was built by John Henry Foley, who was then working on the Albert memorial in London. The monument is in three parts, surmounted by the figure of O’Connell. The base is heavy limestone with four winged figures representing patriotism, fidelity, courage and eloquence. Above this is a drum surrounded by figures representing O’Connell’s labours and triumphs. Source :
