A New European Monument: Dublin’s Spire

Wed Jan 22, 2003 3:42 am

Hello,

Just a short message to let you all that Dublin (Ireland) finally has a true monument. The final piece of the Millennium Spire went up today, 3 years late and quite a bit over budget.

Oh loads of people are whining that the money could have been spent on other things, but jeez, I think it is beautiful and inspiring.
