Funny how a set of initials can have an impact. In 1966, the Nelson Monument in Dublin was blown up by an IRA bomb. The competition to replace it, a Millennium project, was won by Ian Ritchie and, following a court case and long political battle, his triumphant scheme was put into effect. The name on all the drawings followed those of the full practice title: Ian Ritchie Architects.
IRA has thus both destroyed and created Dublin's centrepiece.
