Daniel O'Connell, known as the Liberator", was a famous Irish politician who fought for Catholic Emancipation and helped to gain many new privileges for the Catholic population. He was born in the Caherciveen area on the Ring, and was indeed one of the greatest Irish politicians of all time in the British Parliament.
Here we have a photo of the ruins of Daniel's home on the outskirts of Caherciveen.
The famous Charlie Chaplin spent many happy holidays here in Waterville, and this statue was erected in his honour. Here we have Henry, pictured posing with Charlie. Henry is the one on the left.
Ladies View is one of the great attractions on the Ring, and it was here that Queen Victoria stood with her handmaidens,and proclaimed it to be "The Most Beautiful View in the Kingdom" I would have to agree that the view does appear more attractive when you can see it clearly.
