Day 179 James Larkin (Photo A Day 2012)

This Statue of the Labour leader James Larkin is on the side of the ICTU building which is in Donegall Street Place Belfast. It was jointly commissioned by The Irish Congress of Trade Unions and Laganside Corporation unveiled on 8th of May 2006 by David Begg the General Secretary of ICTU. The Artist was Anto Brennan.  I always felt that the statue would be better known if it had been erected on Donegall St itself because Donegall Street Place is hidden away down as narrow side street.
