  • It's a lovely statue, nice piece of history. I recommend not to sit or touch it as it tends to attract odd behaviours.. It's located very close to the spire and is a great meeting point.
  • A fine looking statue of famous Dublin writer, James Joyce. It was erected in 1990 on North Earl Street, close to the Spire and the GPO.
