Millennium Dublin Spire pictures, Ireland's capital city

The Dublin Spire is 120 metres high and located at the center of O'Connell Street in Ireland's Capital city. It's built on the same central area of O'Connell Street previously occupied by  Nelson's Pillar until an explosion in 1966.
Originally planned as part of Dublin city's Millennium celebrations, construction was initially postponed by a legal challenge & after work commenced, high winds also proved to be a delaying factor.
