O’Connell Street, named after the great emancipator,
is Ireland’s main street, where a nation’s heroes stand proud.
It has seen the fortunes of a city and a nation rise and fall over time
and the signs are still here, if you know where to look.
On this tour you’ll meet and greet some of the most important
and influential people in Irish history,
(although it wasn’t always Irish people on display here)
Learn the several names of this street before the great man himself,
discover the events that shaped the nation in the 1916 Rising
and see the destruction caused by the fighting.
All with the Spire watching over from the sky above.
