So what do the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show listeners think of that?
No it should be named after an Irish person first if the name is to be changed, it's a really bad idea.
Call it "Nelson's Needle"...?
I think it’s a disgrace of an idea, is there no Irish person it could be called after?
Just name it Madiba and that way Nelson is left out of.
Morning Ian. With greatest respect to Mr Nelson Mandela, have we forgotten all our Irish heroes, "Q".
Nelson's Spire to replace Nelson's Pillar?
Nelson's Point as in meeting point - it's pointing to the sky.
Should be called Pearse's Pillar. . . . Perfect location and all! We do have 100 anniversary coming up in fairness.
The spire should be renamed the Freedom Spire or the Independence Spire.
Name the spire after Donal Walsh, he touched so many people.
Why not call the spire the 1916 Rising for obvious reasons and then put in a section to everyone involved in the Easter Rising
We have enough of our own heroes of our own instead of going outside the country?
What do you think?
