`O' Connel was one of the greatest leaders in Ireland. The statue is impressive and when passing by, it is worthwhile to take a moment and learn about his role in history.

The O’Connell Monument is a large interesting structure serving as a tribute to leadership during the uprising. I was able to see the bullet holes that someone else discussed, you can find out more of the Irish hx and wars during the castle guided tour.
