Replace unsightly Spire with a fitting monument
I AGREE with the reader from Canada about the loss of Nelsonâ€™s Pillar in O’Connell Street, Dublin (Irish Examiner, September 25).
Rebuilding a tower people could visit would have been much better than the monstrosity we have today. The Spire is filthy and ugly. What were we thinking of? How can we get rid of it?
I cannot find the letter of 25 September 2005.
