O'Connell has left his mark on Dublin. A round tower marking his family's crypt north of Dublin in Glasnevin can be seen for miles. He has been featured on Irish banknotes, and the former Carlisle Bridge over the River Liffey has been renamed O'Connell Bridge. The main throughfare through Dublin is--what else?--O'Connell Street.

I find it apt there is a dog incorporated as O'Connell was extremely loyal and dedicated to Ireland. His leadership and inspiration eventually led to an Irish Free State in 1922, and without him the Republic of Ireland would probably be under the wing of the United Kingdom.
