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.

The best part is the Irish wolfhound on the base. He's a symbol of loyalty. You will find this statue on the north side of the Liffey River on O'Connell Street.
