I crossed from the south side of Dublin to the north each day on my way to college. I’ve never worn a watch, I resisted the obligatory mobile phone for as long as a man could. Apart from the bus ticket I got while boarding, I would rely on the clocks of Dublin to determine if I would make my lecture on time
My uncle always said that to appreciate Dublin you should look upwards. That’s why I focused on the beautiful, old red bricks & sign for this print
I don’t live in Ireland anymore, I mostly come home for weddings. I read that a lady called Carmel Moran was the only person still living on o’connell street, in an apartment above mcdowells. She moved on recently I believe but was a resident there for some 30 years or more. It’s interesting for me to think of the changes she would have seen from her window as I approach the milestone of living abroad for longer than I did in my place of birth.
