19th Century view of the Obelisk in Newtown Park, Stillorgan. The Obelisk was built in 1727 at the instigation of Lord Allen, probably to provide local employment that year. It may also have been built as a monument to Lady Allen, although she was not buried there. The obelisk measures one hundred feet in height and is made of granite. Edward Lovett Pearce took his inspiration from an obelisk by Bernini, located in Rome. Stillorgan, County Dublin, Ireland
