The Anna Livia monument has been something of a joke for Dubliners since it was erected in 1988 on O'Connell Street. Designed by Eamonn O'Doherty to mark Dublin's own millennium, the gushing water sculpture features the goddess of the river Liffey in a suggestive pose and was immediately christened "the floozy in the Jacuzzi" by general consensus. With the erection of the new Spire of Dublin/Monument of Light in this space, the fountain was moved in 2011 to its present site in The Croppies Acre Park, in front of the National Museum (Michael Collins Barracks).
