"One of Rathmines' most prominent buildings is the Town Hall and its clock tower (also known as the four-faced liar as no one side shows the same time)."

I'm sorry, but I have lived in Rathmines and never heard of the clock referred to in this way. Is this a weasel word? Iain 16:07, 10 August 2006 (UTC) 16:05, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

It's unsourced anyway. I'll remove it unless somebody can come up with a source. --Ryano 16:14, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

I once read it in a book I read for a school project on the area, but I certainly never heard anyone actually use the term, and I lived in Rathmines pretty much my whole life. It's probably an expression that came about before wristwatches when people relied on clock-towers to tell the time. I have noticed that the faces are not always in sync, though I honestly couldn't tell you if this has changed recently.

"Four Faced Liar" is a name used to refer to St Ann's Church steeple, Cork (aka Shandon Bells)[1] - I've never heard it used in the context of Rathmines Town Hall Ccferrie (talk) 23:29, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
