We have been busy this week. We DARTed (train) into Dublin each day. We ate fish and chips at Leo Burdock’s and strolled the streets. The GPO (General Post Office) was the headquarters of the Rising in 1916 and it was bombarded by a British ship which came up the Liffey River a block away.
Celia is standing on the corner beside the O’Connell Statue on O’Connell Street just South of the GPO.
The Ireland National Museum of Archeology was nice. We saw artifacts that go back 5000 years.
The Irish were very interested in the US election and seemed to be thrilled by the profound “Yes we can.”
We passed St. Andrew’s Church on the way home.
Celia has a latte in the Kilkenny Store for shopping energy.
We went to the National Library of Ireland and saw an interesting exhibition on William B. Yeats. This poem seemed apropos.
