The lovely bronze statue of ‘Micko’ stands on the seafront in his native Waterville. Anyone who doesn’t know him before passing by the statue will surely be impressed when they google him and read about his achievements.

I've been to 54 countries but never before come across a monument to such a parochial subject. Only in Ireland I wonder? He must be truly esteemed.

I have a pic with Charlie Chaplin but as I did not know this player and I am not a football fan, this statue was not really my cup of tea. But then for other people it would be the other way around...

Located in the center of town by a garden. Shopping was all around. A local guy was sitting on the wall beside the statue with his pet. Both the guy and the goat had beards. They almost looked like twins. Tourists were talking with them.
