Full of errors
There are a few glaring errors in the points listed in this file:
"Croque" Park: Should be "Croke Park".
Nelsons Colomn (sic): There used to be a Nelson's Column - it stood where the Millenium Spire (or needle) now stands, but was blown up by terrorists during the 1960s. The monument in the Phoenix Park that bears this label in the file is actually the "Wellington Monument", named after the Dublin-born Duke of Wellington.
If anybody is maintaining the files, it would be worth fixing these items.
Hi there I am awfully sorry about that and I will fix it now.
Nelson's Column? Nahhhhh
Might be better to rename it to Nelson's PILLAR because as an old Dubliner (I remember the Pillar and my eldest son was born the night it was blown up... or down :-) It was never known as anything other than Nelson's Pillar (never COLUMN) :whoa:
