You can go inside the obelisk now snowy. My son and his wife went in on our last visit and took some pictures of the interior.

As a foot note Snowy, I was trying to remember the name of your Hospital and it came to me after I posted. It was of course St. Columcilles. Sister Fidealus was the head nun there after Sister Rose.

Snowhite When on my last visit ti Killiney my son and his wife managed to get in to the obelisk and climb the stairs to he top.
I wasn't aware of this until we were ready to go home. I didnt notice whether the old tea rooms were still at the entrance gate. I have often had a cup of tea there and also at the one on the strand. My Mother knew the owner of the one on the strand and we were given a lot of tea cups and saucers from the owners who were in the process of giving it all up.

I was up at the obelisk today and to my horror saw that its been sprayed with graffiti now i know what i would like to do with this person if i got my hands on them,i think at least they should be named and shamed and a photo of them cleaning up their mess posted for all to see. how do you think we should deal with these fools ??

Holla, this has been done by Ireland's highly educated youth! The Government has been telling us about them for years, suprising the literacy rate has falled dramatically. They must have the brains of gnats because there is nothing between their ears. I do agree with your punishment, even something more harsh. Suppose I should have this in Moan of the Month....

Flog the baskits -

While looking for something else I found this very interesting study of maps and conservation area of Killiney. I am posting it here and hope you will enjoy, I think it is DunLaoghaire Co Co study.

Wow, just drove by Killiney and the Oblisk is shining...lit up Green for St patrick's Day. Well done DunLaoghaire Rathdown Co Co. Fantastic sight against the night sky.

Yeh have to agree
I saw the obelisk on the hill from a distance over the last couple of nights and it looked great
