... until the man on the hop-on-hop-off bus said something. And I still really do not know who WolfTone is, other than a band. Rather a modern take on a 17th/18th century person. Nice sculpture, but I couldn’t find a name plaque for the life...More

Given what Wolfe Tone achieved this statue is a rather glad homage to the man. The ‘Father of Irish Republicanism’ probably deserves something which looks less sad. Make your own mind up and visit it.

I really liked the spot where this statue is located, right at the entrance of St. Stephen's Green. It is a tall, bronze statue of one of Irish icons and it gives the spot a sense of grandiosity. The statue has a lot of detail...More

The statue is somewhat forbidding in this strangely neglected corner of Saint Stephen's. You will notice that the face is sculpted in fine detail whereas the body is a kind of amorphous hulk. If you approach the statue from the rear You'll note there's something...More

Unlike what the map indicates, this statue stands at the south eastern corner of St. Stephens green park. The figure is considered highly as one of the earliest call for the Irish liberation. And he assisted in arming rebellions. Interesting history.
