Reply To: Spike
There was a piece in one of the papers in the last three weeks saying that the lightning would indeed travel through a rod in the centre of the Spire. The city council said that the possibility of lightning was always part of the considerations and the original design plan. And they said there was no possible danger. If only I could remember which paper I saw it in.
PS: When was the last time anyone saw fork lightning in Dublin. I think it must be wacky Michael O’Nuallain putting this about out of desperation.
