Lady Grattan Drinking Fountain 1992

 Historical / Posted 2 years ago by My Local News / 353 views

This fountain was presented to the citizens of Dublin in 1880 by Lady Laura Grattan, daughter-in-law of the patriot Sir Henry Grattan, at a time when running water was supplied to only a small number of houses in the capital. Drinking cups would have been attached to the shaft, while horses could drink from the basin.
