Lent us some willpower, will ya?
This is the famous statue of St Patrick and the Muffin, on James' Street.
He spent forty very long days staring at a muffin without taking a single bite. Not even a nibble. Not even a little lick while no one was looking.
On the fortieth day, a massive herring gull dive-bombed on him and tore the muffin away from his trembling, famished fingers.
St Patrick uttered a number of rather unsaintly expletives. And then he bought a kebab. Or so the legend says.
