  General Post Office
by Jase1177

Near the center of O'Connell St sits the historic General Post Office, epicenter of the 1916 Easter Uprising. As I understand it, the building was bombed during fighting but much of it remained and was restored. The GPO remains a functioning post office with many users daily. There is a statue of the mythical hero Cuchulainn in the main window, depicting his death. The building a good example of Georgian architecture on the inside and out. It is open to the public to walk in and view the building and the paintings on the wall.
