    Public Art: Kitty O'Shea's lover

    Designed 1903-1907 by Irish-American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907). Parnell was the great leader of the influential Irish Home Rule movement in the late 19th century, until his adulterous relationship with "Kitty O'Shea" brought him down from the peaks of public adulation.

    Memorial to Charles Steward Parnell

    There are many other monuments and memorials to see was you walk along O'Connell Street. The one pictured here is to Irish Patriot Charles Stewart Parnell. He was a patriot whose reputation in Ireland was earned by opposing the Act of Union with Britain and by supporting Catholic emancipation. This monuments stands to his memory on a busy intersection on O'Connell Street. I had to dodge a few cars to get to the pedestrian island in the middle of the street to take the photos.

    The statue situated at the top of O'Connell street is of Charles Stewart Parnell who was protestant land owner who became a politician. He fought for home rule in Ireland from UK and for a fair deal for farmers and other peasants on land rules to give them fair prices on rent and the right to sell. Parnell was known as the uncrowned king of Ireland

    "No man shall have the right to fix the boundary to the march of a Nation"

    This quote was attributed to Charles Stewart Parnell who greatly improved the lives of the Irish Farmers. He organized the masses against the landlords to seek Fixity of Tenure, Freedom to Sell and Fair Rent.

    The statue at the top of O'Connell St is of Charles Stuart Parnell, who campaigned for Irish Home Rule from the UK in the 1890s.

    The Statue of Parnell

    by Groentje Updated Jan 3, 2003

    Parnell square was named after this guy (I don't remember what he did exactly!). Note the harp next to his statue, one of thé cultural signs in Dublin. We actually saw the real harp, which is depicted on the Irish form of the Euro, Europe's currency (as if you didn't know).
