Statue of John Joseph ‘Rinty’ Monaghan (1918-1984), a Belfast flyweight boxer who won British, European and World titles.

He always sang ‘When Irish Eyes are Smiling’ after fights.

“You never lose until you actually give up” Mike Tyson

Belfast City Council erected a statue to Monaghan at Cathedral Gardens on 20 August 2015.

The 10-foot high bronze statue on a granite plinth was designed by Alan Beattie Herriot and features Monaghan holding a microphone and singing “When Irish Eyes are Smiling”

In boxing sport, you can never take things for granted and Mike Tyson’s quote is apt. The attitude should be that you are not going to give up because of your willpower.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
