College Green, obviously named today after Trinity College, but in medieval days it was known as Hoggen Green. Situated ½ km east of the city walls, Hoggen Green was once a common area used for grazing animals and for the performance of plays and pageants, the practice of archery and the popular spectacle of public hangings.
In the centre of College Green, with outstretched arm, is the 18th century patriot, Henry Grattan.

 

He was a member of the then Irish Parliament where he strenuously but vainly opposed the infamous Act of Union which united Ireland with Great Britain in 1800.
