Samuel Beckett Bridge, Dublin

Dublin is to have a new bridge across the Liffey. It should be in place and use in 2010. These are a few photos of the bridge newly delivered to the site in the last few days. I think it will look great when it's in place.

Spring 2009

Spring is here, or should I say summer if we go by the month. Although it's May I still think of Spring. A week or two ago, I paid a visit to the beautiful village of Inistioge in Co Kilkenny, and the lovely woodlands and gardens of Woodstock House. The pictures I've posted are just of the flowers I found there. Will show some other village and garden pictures next time.
