The first day after we arrived in Dublin we went to the starbucks near our apartment and went on the Luas(tramway) and did a bus tour to have a quick round to see all the interesting sites.
The Daniel O' Connell monument was unveiled in 1882. The momument bares the scars of Irish conflicts between 1916-1922. If you look closely up at the angels (only two of them) you should see evidence of bullet marks.
The Dublin General Post Office served during the Easter Rising of 1916 as the headquarters of the uprising's leaders.
The British forces extensively damaged the building and it was not repaired until the Irish Free State government took up the task some years later.
The original columns outside are still pocked with bullet-marks.
The building has remained a symbol of Irish nationalism. In commemoration of the Rising, a statue depicting the death of the mythical hero Cúchulainn sculpted by Oliver Sheppard in 1911 is housed in the front of the building.
The Spire of Dublin, officially titled the Monument of Light (Irish: An Túr Solais) is a large, stainless steel, pin-like monument 121.2 metres (398 ft) in height, located on the site of the former Nelson's Pillar on O'Connell Street.
The Liffey (An Life in Irish) is a river in Ireland, which flows through the centre of Dublin.
