Reply To: The Spike
At last! RTE’s environment correspondent Paul Cunningham has got his act together. Sweeping pompous journalistic attitudes to one side, he openly expressed his opinion of the Spire at 7.10 this morning on Morning Ireland. In the first positive comments of the scupture expressed on RTE Television & Radio, he described the wonderful play of light on the steel at different times of day, arguably the most charming, yet most neglected aspect of the Spire, also mentioning it’s radical, yet elegant design and the spectacular impact it has on the Street.
With between 400,000 – 500,000 people listening, it can only have had a positive effect on public opinion. Keep it up Paul!
(RTE is keeping an OB unit on the Street all day so coverage should improve, as it appears to have done over the past 48 hours)
