    Great landmark to meet people at. Remember it's on the North Side.

    The actual official name of The Spire is the Monument of Light- fact. It's also known locally as Bertie's prick!

    It points in 2 directions, up and down. But mostly up. Very handy if you get confused. It's also the site of St. Patrick's final battle with the snakes. The skeleton is housed in the transparent base

    The Spire is a popular meeting point. I enjoyed seeing it change in different lights, particularly at night.

    Look up to the top of the spire, close your eyes, count to 10 and make a wish. Mine came true.

    Don't even bother trying to compete for this mayorship - I suspect it's locked by 4square #fail

    It's so big, foreigners use it to meet and trade goods, such as food, alcohol, medicines that can't be sold in Ireland without prescription...

    The cause of much controversy and one of Dublin's perpetual debates. The Spire is a focal point for the city centre. Personally, I'm a fan. The Spire is elegant, huge and not too intrusive. Love it!
