We had to see the John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara sites. The statue was one of the things on our list. Yes, it's just a statue, but it is special.

If you are a fan of the Quiet Man, or near Ashford Castle, stop by! The Village is quaint and it's fun to trace the steps from the film.

The big attractions in Cong and Ashford Castle so a statue of John Wayne and Maureen O Hara is sure to be a big winner. Make sure you stop by and get a selfie.

The John Wayne statue is a tribute to the Actor, who played one of the lead roles in 'The Quiet Man', an American movie. The movie depicted a love affair, based in rural Ireland.

When we got there the statue was covered with Halloween decorations, but we were allowed to take them off to get pictures.
