Dublin City Wall Marker.
|Main Creator:||Casey, Patrick, M. photographer|
A series of upright granite stones with a circular bronze plaque inset can be seen at various points in the centre of the city, in the area between Dublin Castle and Christ Church Cathedral. These mark the line of the Medieval city walls and tower and the city gates. On the bronze plaque can be seen the plan of the Medieval city, with a metal spot which denotes the location of a particular tower or gate. As only a small section of the city walls can be seen above ground, the wall markers serve as a reminder of the layout and street plan of the Medieval city. They were erected by Dublin Corporation shortly of the Millenium year of 1988.
