  • This statue, which is located on O'Connell Street, is dedicated to political and trade unionist Jim Larkin, who fought all his life for Irish workers ' rights. The visitor is immediately struck by the expressive force of the face and by the dynamism, emerging from the body posture.

  • James (Jim) Larkin was a Socialist activist and union leader in Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century. His statue stands on O'Connell Street and the pigeons may Jim not so; his entire head is ondergescheten and with his arms wide is the net if he calls for help.

  • The great voice that did not need to have a microphone .. not a myth, just breath it you would get ..
  • Iconic statue commemorating 'Big Jim' Larkin of 1913 Lockout fame. His most historic speech was given from the balcony of the adjacent Clery's department store. Ironic, that a century later Clery's own workers would themselves be victims of a lockout.
  • Iconic statue who was founder of worker union of Ireland
  • Look for the bullet holes.
  • Love that statue!

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
