We also visited Merrion Square (Oscar Wilde lived at number 1 and WB Yeats lived at number 52 and 82), and wandered about in the Temple Bar area, and central Dublin. I was very excited to see the Post Office with the Cuchulainn statue commemorating the Easter Rising 1916, as I’ve wanted to see it for a very long time.
We also saw the very harrowing famine statues, showing people who emigrated from Ireland during the potato famine.
And the statue of James Connolly, trade union leader and one of the leaders of the Easter Rising 1916.
And a sculpture in memory of the people who Amnesty International were unable to save.
And a statue of James Joyce.
And a statue of Oscar Wilde:
And we visited St Stephen’s Green, another green oasis in the heart of Dublin.
