The Obelisk, Killiney Hill

Cnoc Chill Iníon Léinín
County Dublin

From Killiney Hill at Dalkey, 170 metres above sea level, you have a breathtaking view over southern Dublin Bay. On the hill stands an obelisk tragically linked to Ireland’s history. Its construction in 1742 was an initiative to provide work for the starving population.
