Mystic monument: Ian Ritchie's Spire of Dublin.

A monument, so says the dictionary, is anything that preserves the memory of a person or event. But it adds that a monument can be anything that is considered an object of beauty. Right then. On both counts, architect Ian Ritchie's 400-foot high stainless-steel needle, recently erected in the centre of Dublin, is a monument. And a singularly interesting one.
