  • A sculpture of Brendan Behan on a bench with a pigeon. Nicely made. There are also usually some live animals, pigeons or swans nearby. The statue is just next to the walking path that goes by the Royal canal so it is accessible. It is good to walk the path from west to east as this is easier on account of being downhill. Nice area although a bit rough. So from time to time there will be homeless people drinking around the statue, but I haven't seen any trouble there.
  • What can I say, it's a lovely statue. You can sit next to it, you can hug it, you can talk to it if you feel like it. What more you need from the statue...?
