Great sunset over River Liffey last night. Shot on iphone on the way into Merc for a few scoops with main man ‘Homer’…dude!
Happy St. Patricks Day
Snapped this little fella on the way home from the parade last year.
A quick ramble around Howth, North Co Dublin and you can’t help stumble across the castle grounds. Howth is also home to Irelands Transport Museum, Deer Park Golf Course, the Abbey Tavern and a certain member of U2.

Took a walk on the beach yesterday with the 3 ‘little’ Bernese’s in Portmarnock and was joined by the other 2. Yes 5 Bernese Mountain Dogs at once. Can you imagine the palava? Great craic though and took this sneaky shot on the brothers iphone camera..(that’s hom in the background) Life doesn’t get much faster than this.
On the other hand…
Took a walk down Hanover Quay earlier this month and came across U2’s recording studio. Not much to look at really but the place is covered in street art, some great and some not so great but all fanatical. I once had the opportunity to work for U2 on their Zooropa tour many years ago. It was very hard work but one of the best experiences and I got to see the band back stage and close up! Thinking about it now… if only I had a camera with me back then. These images took me back to just how devoted their fans can be.
So I dragged my vegetarian arse out from a nice warm couch into the ‘fresh’ Dublin City Centre air on Sunday for a strole thinking it would be the cure for my dreaded hangover. Went a bit too far on the sauce Saturday night. So hungover, I forgot to take a camera with me and resorted to snapping anything of interest on the trustee Nokia camera phone. Well, the wind was blowing like a hurricane and it hasn’t improved much since Sunday but I did find a bit more street art to add to the collection..I found this image on Fishamble Street (off Temple Bar) next to the George Frederic Handel Hotel.
And this little soldier, I came across on Clanbrassil Street…by my favourite renegade $olus
