Dublin is full of statues but I have a preference for "modern" statues... old statues i want to see them in Rome, in Dublin I want something different. There are at least three statues worth seeing, and possibly more (but which I still have to discover).
The first one is known as the Hags with the Bags, and it's just by the Ha'penny Bridge (northside) wight in front of the Dublin Woollen Mills shop. The hags are two (sort of) intolerant/petulant old women sitting on a bench with their shopping bags.
The second statue is that of Molly Malone, the famous fishmonger of the infamous song, with the obligatory wheelbarrow. The song is horrible, the statue not. it's located at the entrance of Grafton street, TCD side.
The third one is that of James Joyce, standing very pensive and with his walking cane ath the beginning of Talbot street, O'Connell street side. It's thanks to Joyce that my long love affair with Dublin started. I have to like this statue
Directions: See directions above. They are all in the inner city centre.
