|Irish Giant |
|Height||12 ft 2|
The giant was allegedly dug up by a Mr Dyer while prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim, Ireland.
It was 12 ft 2 in (3.71 m) tall, weighed 2 tonnes, and had 6 toes on its right foot. After being exhibited in Dublin, it was brought to England and exhibited in Liverpool and Manchester at sixpence a head.
After an ownership dispute and that the rail carriage charge was not paid, the Giant was left with the rail company and nothing was heard about it since.
