This statue was originally designed for and placed in a fountain in the centre of O'Connell street. For the last few years it's been exiled to this park facing a busy road bridge and with intermittent access, the council seem determined to keep it locked away. The statue is not particularly noteworthy or worth going out or one's way to... More

Moved from O'Connell Street years ago, it was quite nice to see her repositioned here. You could nearly check her out while passing on a bus!! It is worth checking out the Croppies Acre Park memorial also for a pleasant walk and spend a moment looking at Wolfe Tones stone also. Enjoy!

Croppies Acre park is the perfect setting for Anna Livia. Lying in her own little pond, she makes a fine sunshade for the pair of ducks which were snoozing in her shade!

The locals call this"Floosie in the jacuzzi." You won't find it where TripAdvisor shows it on the map. It has been moved to a site just north of the River Liffey, east of the site currently shown on the map.

Anna Livia Plurabelle appears in his novel Finnegan’s Wake and reclines here in honor of the River Liffey. As always, Dubliners bestow nicknames on their public figures, “The Floozy in the Jacuzzi” is marvelous and rhymes perfectly.

Of course this famous statue/fountain was once located in the middle of O Connell Street not far from the famous dancing lady and known by various different alias. It was moved to facilitate the regeneration of O Connell Street and it was only very recently that I realised the statue had in fact been relocated to the small park close... More

On a brief trip to Ireland, October-November, 2003, I spent some time in Dublin. On my last day, I went up O'Connell Street, to the General Post Office. In the middle of the street, just beyond the GPO was a strange three-times-life-size lady, lying down in a stream. her sensitive parts covered with flowing stainless steel tresses. I saw no... More
