Here in Dublin, way back when, the British erected a statue of Admiral Nelson. You could climb up inside the staue and look over the city. Now Nelson had never ever been in Ireland. We became our own country and somebody decided it was time to get rid of Nelson. Only they used too much explosives. They think the bomber died doing his work. 2 deaths. That was back in the 60's. even a ballad made about Nelson been the first man in space. British staues in Ireland? No. Mind you Still a lot of building with British names. Royal this, that and the other. They changed all the area names to Irish names. Nelson had nothing got to do with Ireland or Irish history at all. Just a British thing. Only statue they ever erected in this country. So only one ever removed. Blown into a thousand pieces.
