I think the statue has been moved around. Google images shows it in two different places. Maybe there is two of them?

Oh, and it looks like it is full size too.

What's sad is I rode within two miles of it in June and never knew it was there. Passed right by Ballymoney on the way to Derry. Missus likely could have used a break from the pillion of that R1200GS right about then. Under 200 mi from Comber/Belfast to Derry, but it's a full day with the sights and stops along the way. Be a grand place to ride an SP though...em, solo that is

It'd be cool if our currency had faces of racers instead of dead presidents.
