Lights in the rain

A rainy, wet street in Dublin at night. Two people walking towards me with umbrellas.

Rain pours out of the sky and runs along the pavement in this street in Dublin last year. It wasn’t a bad night if you had an umbrella.

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…

Training on a bike

A boy on his training bike in the shadows cast by the Gaiety Theatre entrance.

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.

The Flower Seller

A man selling flowers on Graft Street watches as a woman looks for what she wants to buy

On Grafton Street, Dublin, you’ll find people selling flowers to passing pedestrians. There are a few of them, so business must be pretty good. Lots of foot traffic in the area, though. Lovely displays of colour too.
