Reply To: The Spike
There is another great monument on O’Connell
Street that never gets any of the glory it deserves, namely the Parnell Monument. It’s a real humdinger I think and always had me twisting my neck in the car to get a better look as we drove past it when I was a kid.
So don’t get hung up on details on the Spike,
check out the Parnell monument or have a look at the Wellington monument up in the park, it must be 150 years old and there’s not a chip off it.
