'Hibernia'

'Hibernia' is a statue at the apex of the roof on the General Post Office, O' Connell Street, Dublin. The GPO was completed in 1818 in Greek revival style and 'Hibernia' - a classical representation of Ireland in female form - is the work of sculptor John Smyth. The GPO was occupied by rebels during the Easter Rising of 1916 and bullet holes from the rebellion can still be seen in the columns holding up the portico beneath 'Hibernia'.
