The Old Ground Hotel, Ennis - mekenita restaurant signature dishes
O'Connell Street in Dublin is considered one of the widest main streets in Europe.
The equivalent of Ennis, however, may be the narrowest passage with the name of the great liberator.
However, the main street in Clare's capital may boast of a more impressive statue of the great Irish, who proudly stands on Nelson's pillars and watches the towns below.
The statue was unveiled as early as 1865, nearly 40 years after the Liberator elected Claire in 1828, which led to the liberation of the Catholic Church.
There is no doubt that the unveiling of the statue and the election victory of 1828 triggered a grand celebration in the city center, most likely in the manor, which is now one of the best four in the county --
