I am submitting a proposal to Dublin City Council to erect a monument to commemorate the recent visits by Queen Elizabeth II and President Barack Obama. “Steel Barrier No. 1” will be located in a public place to remind us of these special few days when we walked shoulder-to-shoulder with our distinguished guests. It is my hope it will become as iconic to the city as Daniel O’Connell, The Spire and Patrick Kavanagh looking miserable.
