DUBLIN - Ireland's O'Connell Tower reopened to the public on Saturday after it closed 47 years ago following a bomb attack whose perpetrator has still not been officially identified.

Hundreds of tourists, both local and foreign, were seen coming in from different corners of the city to visit the tower on the first day of its reopening to the public.

Located in the north of Dublin city, the tower was built in 1855 in memory of Daniel O'Connell, one of the greatest political figures in the first half of the 19th century in Ireland, who was most famous for his fight for the equal political and civil rights of Catholics in the country.
