Bank of Ireland

Bank of Ireland & parliament buildings

Listen to the Bandwagon musicians play their version of ‘Dublin Saunter’ as we pass by the epic Bank of Ireland Parliament Building that has become an iconic piece of architecture in the city of Dublin. Admiring the three statues representing Hibernia (the Latin name for Ireland), Fidelity and Commerce (later carved by Edward Smyth) stood above the portico. In 1803 this stunning building became a bank after the Act of Union when the Parliament relocated to London.
