It’s 55 years today since the iconic Nelson’s Pillar was blown up in Dublin. A lot of myth has grown around the bombing of this monument, which has been attributed to the IRA…. Well, as it turns out, that’s not entirely true. 

Kieran Cuddihy was joined by Lorcan Collins of the 1916 Rebellion Walking Tour and Host of the Revolutionary Ireland podcast to discuss this further.
