The Spire Monument Of light

The Spire Monument Of Light Dublin City

This Landmark was designed to be self cleaning due to the materials that were used to construct it, but so far it has cost roughly €3.6 million or thereabouts to maintain and clean it.

It has been officially branded the monument of light. People who reside in Ireland also call it the spike, or another name for it would be the stiletto in the ghetto.

How much or what was the price to buy this landmark? Its estimated to have cost the Irish government, €4 million that’s a lot of money for a stiletto! This landmark replaces Nelsons Pillar which was blown up in 1966.
