The O’ Connell Monument in Dublin is an important landmark that is dedicated to the “Liberator” Daniel O’Connell (1775-1847) after whom the street was renamed after independence of Ireland. He was an Irish political leader who fought for Catholic emancipation. Erected in 1862, this monument was given shape by John Henry Foley, a leading sculptor of the day. The monument is surmounted by the figure of O’Connell with a heavy limestone base carved with personifications of Patriotism, Fidelity, Courage and Eloquence. There are also figures that represent O’Connell’s labours and triumphs.
