Last month I had a very last minute and unexpected opportunity to visit Dublin. I had just two days looking around by myself while my husband was at work - the weather wasn't great but here of some of the things that stuck me.
Of course the pubs
Trinity College Library containing the Book of Kells which I wasn't able to photograph
The Georgian houses - I particularly enjoyed this one, celebrating Dublin's year as European City of Culture
and this one with the fabulous door furniture
As I approached Dublin Castle I heard a volley of gunfire. This was shortly after the devastatingTunisian beach attack so I felt a momentary frisson of fear which was quickly allayed when I noticed a crowd of people watching something. It was, of course, filming for a TV programme on the Easter Rising of 1917
Near St Patrick's Cathedral I found trees with hand crocheted socks!
There were plenty of statues
and opportunities for street photography
and finally I was intrigued / amused by these Edward V11 letter boxes still in service but painted green!
