O'Connell Street and Moore Street Market

At the end of the afternoon we walked a few blocks up O'Connell Street (the center of the Irish Rebellion) and then over to Moore Street Market.

A statue of Daniel O'Connell stands at the foot of the street. According to Wikipedia,
"Daniel O'Connell ), often referred to as The Liberator or The Emancipator, was an Irish political leader in the first half of the 19th century. He campaigned for Catholic emancipation—including the right for Catholics to sit in the Westminster Parliament, denied for over 100 years—and repeal of the Act of Union which combined Great Britain and Ireland."
