Challenge: Identify statue on Northern Ireland notes

If you can precisely identify the proper name and location of the statue above—or have a lead which you think might be useful—please send me an email, preferably including a URL which links to evidence supporting your identification. This same statue appears at center front of Northern Ireland B615 to B808.

According to Diarmuid Curran, it's a generic vignette of Hibernia. Can anyone confirm or refute this assertion?
