MARIAN STATUE OSCAR SQUARE PUBLIC PARK IN THE COOMBE
I was aware of a street named after Oscar Wilde in the Liberties area of Dublin but I was unaware of Oscar Square Public Park until today and I did not know that there was a Marian statue in the immediate area.
A local lady told me that when she was young it was known as Rosary Park, and it was always closed to the public except on Sundays, but it is now known as Oscar Square Park even though it is not square [there was also a joke that I cannot include here]. When I returned home I checked a few maps and it looks square to me but I did come across an account that described it as a triangle. I also discovered that it once featured a bomb shelter.
