The Wellington Monument, Phoenix Park Dublin.
After Washington's obelisk, it is the second tallest in the world.
The Wellington monument is 63m (205ft) high and was built to commemorate the Irish born Duke of Wellington's  military campaigns including the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815. The monument's foundation stone was laid in 1817 though a lack of funding delayed its completion until 1861.
Born Arthur Wellesley in 1769 at Mornington House, 24 Upper Merrion Street, Wellington was also the inventor of the famous water-resistant boot named after him.
