Time for the train

A clock suspended from the roof of Heuston Train Station, Dublin.

The odd thing about travel is that I’ve probably been in the US more times than I’ve been in Dublin, and certainly have been in London.

An Bhlarna

The sign points the way to Blarney or Blarna in Irish. If you’re interested, that’s pronounced “blawrnah”

“Secrets”, an adult store, occupies the building at the centre of this photo.

Sean O Connor’s Dental Laboratory

Sean O Connors Dental Laboratory

I never noticed this sign for a dental laboratory on Castle Street before. Maybe it’s the large gaping hole in the streetscape next to it that caught my eye? It must be a really old sign, that phone number had a “4” prefix added to it many years ago.

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary's Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney in the background. We walked around the town a few weeks back but I didn’t have time to get down to the Cathedral this time. Still impressive, even from this distance.

I wonder if “Tim O’Brien & Sons Furniture Carpets” is online anywhere?

Director’s Cut

Director's Cut

First of all Virgin Megastore was sold off to Zavvi and shortly afterwards they had a liquidation sale and went under. Now Director’s Cut are in there and it’s a depressing store. There’s no piped music to liven the dead atmosphere, oh dear!
