Grid 5: Inchicore, Dublin; City of Cork

There is a massive stone church in Inchicore, Dublin that people simply refer to as “the Oblates’ Church.” She has quite an attachment to this area of Dublin, for dear good friend Fr. Haslam, retired many years, lives in the priest’s house right beside.

There is a lovely garden right behind the church. Self took a picture of the iron gate leading to the garden. She would never have thought of snapping a picture of the gate if it hadn’t been for the WordPress Daily Post Photo Challenge this week:  GRID.

This afternoon, self took yet another train, this time to Cork.

Oh, beauteous city. There is the River Lee, there is the quay, and there is self’s B & B.

How self loves this city, she knows not why.

Across a little bridge is a university (University of Cork? An art school?) and the area is always full of students. Last year, Ger took her to an exhibit of illuminated light boxes in a gallery inside the art school. We wandered around, swiping glasses of wine. Fuuuun!

And here’s a red lamp throwing a grid of shadows on the walls of self’s room:
