OSCAR WILDE - MERRION SQUARE

In Merrion Square, inside the north west corner gateway, there's a gaudy statue of Oscar Wilde composed of different coloured stone, sitting on a large granite boulder. This has been called at least once The Queer with the Leer, The Fag on the Crag or The Quare in the Square ("quare" being a dialectal Irish pronunciation of queer).
