This statue lies at the top end of O'Connell Street and is easily accessible. It gives you all the information you require about Charles S Parnell which makes interesting reading and great if you have a guide book to accompany them all.

Beautiful monument to a man and politician who was respected by all (which is rare for his time frame). This is without a doubt my favorite monument in Dublin.
