Dublin Parks – The Wellington Testimonial Obelisk

Yes, I know I’ve featured the stone needle before but I so liked this picture that I thought why not show the obelisk again. In the summer sunshine it looks great. As it is supposed to represent one of the greats to have gone before I suppose it is best seen in the summer sunshine. The monument was erected in the honour of the Duke of Wellington, he the victor of the Battle of Waterloo and many other campaigns. Why was the tallest obelisk in Europe erected in Dublin? Because the Duke was born here in Ireland.

  2. I laughed when I read your acknowledging having used a photo previously. It really is an exceptional photo. I have that same issue. I love a few of my photos and see so many places they fit into different posts. I am about to surrender to those photos of mine.
    Great post. Thank you.

      Thanks for commenting! I enjoy getting visits to older posts. I then go and have a look myself and can enjoy what why the post was created. Fun… in a roundabout way! ‘-)
