This here is Daniel O'Connell, the Great Emancipator. This statue is found at the intersection where O'Connell Street ends and O'Connell Bridge begins. So, you could say he was an important figure in Irish history. He was responsible (among other things) for getting Catholics the right to sit in Westminster, effectively giving the Irish a voice in how they were governed. Too bad the birds in Dublin don't realise how important he is, there is a tonne of bird crap on his head. Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi
