A half-demolished Nelson's Pillar on O'Connell Street, Dublin. From the front page of the Irish Times on Tuesday, 8 March 1966: "The top of Nelson Pillar, in O'Connell street, Dublin, was blown off by a tremendous explosion at 1.32 o'clock this morning and the Nelson statue and tons of rubble poured down into the roadway. By a miracle, nobody was injured, though there were a number of people in the area at the time." Date: Tuesday, 8 March 1966 NLI Ref.: WALK138A
