My son, Steve, was playing with his band, Murder Plan, at the Dublin City Soul Festival in Temple Bar tonight. We arrived just in time to miss them! However I heard they were awsome (doesn't surprise this chick)
The pic shows Steve with Paul. Steve is the only one of our sons to take up music like Paul.
Below is Marie, Steve, Paul and Stephanie, the singer with Murder Plan
Dublin, of course, has many famous musical sons and daughters and some of them are featured at The Wall of Fame in Temple Bar - below: Window sized photos of Irish rockers U2, Rory Gallagher, Sinead O'Connor, Luke Kelly (Dubliners) Christy Moore, Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzie) and Van Morrison
I love the original old cobbled streets of Temple Bar.
One of the unusual musicians I was telling you about.......
Above this busker seems to be playing a skirting board but I can tell you it has a wonderful sound and he plays it really well.
While I was in the city centre I took lots of pictures for you. Below is the main street of Dublin O'Connell Street showing the Spire
An old door cleverly used as an advertisement for a pub/restaurant
For generations young dating Dubliners have been meeting under Clery's clock. " I'll meet you under the clock" is almost a catchphrase at this stage. It is also on O'Connell Street.
and further down O'Connell Street....the young Dubliners who were successful at the dating game met under this clock and went into "The Happy Ring House" as it is called - McDowells, to buy the happy ring!
Lots of beautiful Georgian doors painted in bright colours.
So I hope you enjoyed your tour of Dublin with me this lovely Friday evening. I wish you all a great weekend. Pam
