Triangular obelisk of 17½ m with a bronze statue of Parnell standing in front of it facing O'Connell Street. Below the statue are bronze shields with the names of the four Irish provinces and around the base of the obelisk shields with the names of the 32 counties. On the front of the obelisk, above the statue, is a gold harp with a text in golden letters.
(The Irish quote translates as: That God may make Ireland flourish for her people).
CHARLES STEWART PARNELL
"no man has a right to fix the
boundary to the march of a nation
no man has a right
to sat to his country
thus far shalt thou
go and no further
we have never
attempted to fix
the ne plus ultra
to the progress of
and we never shall
