I was in Dublin today at a conference and on my way back to the train station I managed to grab a photo (despite the torrential rain!!) of one of the “Victories” at the base of the O’Connell Monument at the southern end of O’Connell Street. This monument was designed by John Henry Foley, completed by Thomas Brock and was unveiled in 1882. Foley also designed the Prince Albert memorial in Hyde Park London. This particular Angel was wounded during the 1916 uprising with a bullet wound to the right breast. There are four “Victories” at the base of the statue representing Patriotism, Courage, Eloquence and Fidelity.
