Did you go on the bus Alex ?
Alex Glass

Yes Scary

It was great got lots of photos. We got of at Kilmainham Gaol and back on to the end and started again and got of at Grafton Street to see the shops

Will take time to go through all the photos and load them up.
John

Alex Glass

Cheers Alex, I need to do the Glasgow one now  
Alex Glass

I was thinking of doing the Glasgow Bus Tour with my video camera. Trying to find some time so that I can do it during the week has been difficult this summer  There is just one elelction after another

Hopefully one day I will be able to fit it in.

Lovely Alex...I've been once..but just kind of passing through....are those wee bike things for postmen or those touristy sightseeing things?
Alex Glass

The bikes are free transport within a an area from O'Connell Street.

Enough room for two people in the back.

Given the steadiness of your hand Alex, I take it these pictures were before the obligatory visit to the Guinness brewery

Did you look for the bullet holes in the wall of the GPO building?

Just having a wee poke of fun there Alex lol...
Any idea why it was mounted on the building as there is usually some legend attached to these things..

Looks like there`s a leg end attached to the clock in the last pic
Alex Glass

No worries Cybers.

Haven't got any information about the compass. I spotted it and didn't think to take a full photo of the building.

I have just checked my original photos and the building must be near O'Connell Street as the photo was taken during the bus tour.

Cong in Ireland

Visited this wee place a few weeks ago while in Ireland, more because I love old films and one of my favourites is the Quiet Man , so I really wanted to see the locations, but when I got there it was such an intersting place with loads of history, loved it.. A wee bit about the place
