The new Howth Lighthouse

A thick pole with lights at the top. Blue skies and fluffy clouds behind it.

If you walk out to the end of the pier at Howth Harbour, you’ll find this tall, thin building. It’s the “new” lighthouse, and has operated there since May 19th, 1982.

Running from the shop

A man in a hoody running out of a shop with a speaker in one hand and a McDonald's cup in the other. Another man is talking to a smiling security guard behind him.
Man in a hoody running past me, looking over his shoulder as his friend comes out of the shop he just left.
Man shouting and coming out of a shop waving his hand holding his phone in the air and a Mc Donald's cup in the other.

Walking along Henry Street in Dublin a few weeks ago, and I saw these two lads coming out of a shop in a hurry. I wouldn’t even have posted these, except the second guy seems to be quite a character!

Sparklers! 2 for €3!

A man selling sparklers on Halloween on Henry Street, Dublin. Two people in the background being polite and listening to him.

A man selling sparklers on Henry Street, Dublin on Halloween this year. He promised that 2 for €3 was better than in the shops where they are 1 for €2, and he was right as we were in a Eurogiant later on!

We didn’t buy any sparklers. He had plenty left over when we passed him again.
