‘A nation’s life might be said to be recorded in its monuments’ (Irish Builder, 1 May 1872). This talk looks at public sculpture in Dublin, from the erection of royal equestrian monuments in the eighteenth century to the unveiling of the Parnell statue in 1911. The focus will be on imperial and nationalist monuments and the controversy that surrounded them across three centuries.
