Heritage Trail Stop 4: Charles Stewart Parnell - the O'Connell Street Statue
When we were researching the films we made about Charles Stewart Parnell we visited his birthplace, Avondale House in Co. Wicklow. Our thanks to the Charles Stewart Parnell Museum for their permission to show some photographs of the visit.
Two objects held at Avondale were of special interest to us – a model of the statue on O’Connell Street used for fundraising before it was built and a corresponding cash book.
Avondale House, run by Coillte has generously allowed us to use images of these objects.
