Walking in Dublin

Put on my green pump shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of my Dublin crew
In the middle of the pouring rain
Daniel O’Connell, won’t you look down over me
Yeah, I got a first class ticket
An’ I’m as green as a girl can be

Then I’m walking in Dublin
Walking with James Joyce striding at my heels
Walking in Dublin
But do I really feel the way I feel?

With many apologies to Marc Cohn

For St. Patrick’s Day this year, we came up with the idea of doing a walking tour through the new streets of Dublin region. The secondary inspiration: dresses from Stories & Co., which we discovered on a recent Fifty Lindens Friday.

And yes, there are many new things; for me, though, the old tried and true was the draw — The Blarney Stone.
It looks like Jem thinks we may need to arrange for bail, for some reason. She’s outside the Garda station. (The Irish police are called An Garda Síochána, the Guardians of the Peace.)
Diana stopped by the local office of An Post. (She didn’t say if she was mailing a St. Patrick’s Day card, or maybe making a deposit to her Postbank savings account.)
And Morgan stopped in front of St. Anne’s Church for this photo. (She reports there are no active services, as far as she can tell. However, if you feel the need, there is a confessional box.)
