SANDYCOVE and DUN LAOGHAIRE, County Dublin Ireland, post-1922

Yesterday I posted an old photo which was north of this photo.  It showed the “Kingstown” beach and looked south toward these “baths” and Sandycove.  You can generally date the images as pre-1922 and post-1922 because when Ireland became independent from the UK in 1922, Kingstown became Dun Laoghaire.  62 more words

Hiking to Sandycove: A Questionable 25km decision.

I am inherently terrible at moderation, I tend to be all in or nothing at all. In life this has both served me very well (I tend to be very good at what I chose to do), and very poorly (sometimes you should probably show up to that Freshman seminar you hate, if you know, you want to pass). 935 more words
