Historical facts of Father Pat Noise :

Father Pat Noise is a fictitious Roman Catholic priest, described on a hoax commemorative plaque installed by two brothers on O'Connell Bridge in Dublin. The plaque was laid in a depression left by the removal of the control box for the "Millennium Countdown" clock installed in the waters of the Liffey in March 1996 as a countdown to the Year 2000. The clock and control box were removed in December 1996 after persistent technical and visibility problems. Dublin City Council stated when the story broke that the Pat Noise plaque would be removed, as it was unauthorized. Several ironic tributes of flowers and messages were left by the plaque. A meeting of the South East Area Committee of the Council in December 2006 supported leaving it in place.
