Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Pub Front

The older part of Dublin Castle

The "newer" part of Dublin Castle

A postcard from Dublin; I didn't take nearly enough pictures cause I didn't want to be too much of a turist

Rockbreaking yard of Kilmainham Gaol, where the Brits took the participants of the 1916 Easter Rising were taken.

Art installation at Kilmainham Gaol.

The cross marks the place where Irish rebel James Connolly was executed. Despite his being mortally wounded in combat, the Brits had him transported back to Kilmainham, tied him to a chair and executed him. This ended up being a huge rallying cry for the Irish.

All I can say is God bless Ireland. I couldn't be happier for the success of the Irish people in these last ten years (known by many as the Celtic Tiger.)
