Shelter from the rain

A group walking in the rain, some covering their heads with jackets. One young man looks in a shop window.

They’re heading to a Halloween party on a rainy October evening in Dublin. The guy looking in the window probably wishes he could get out of the rain, but the others around him show they’re not immune to the wet and are covering their heads.

Me? I was glad I brought an umbrella with me from Cork. I didn’t rub it in by bringing my Corcaigh umbrella…

A training bike is a great way to get kids used to cycling. In a busy city like Dublin, it’s probably best they don’t go on to the car filled roads too soon.
