The Spire of Dublin

After delays through the Irish courts, the Spire of Dublin, the new monument in O’Connell Street, Dublin, will be prefabricated between now and September, and transported and installed in the autumn of 2002.

Bertie Aherne, Ireland’s Prime Minister (an Taoiseach) together with the Lord Mayor of Dublin officially launched the beginning of the construction of the Spire of Dublin at a press briefing in O’Connell Street on 6th April. The regeneration of the area and the renewal of O’Connell Street, Dublin and Ireland’s main street in which the Spire is the centrepiece, is an ambitious project costing more than 300 million euros.
