More photos from our trip to Ireland

Here are some more photos from our time in Dublin:

The city itself is not a particularly attractive place, but this is compensated for by the locals, who are friendly, animated, entertaining, and have a great sense of humour. Just to illustrate, they have come up with some affectionate sounding names for their local statues....

The James Joyce statue (above), also known as the prick with the stick

The Oscar Wilde statue, also known as the fag on the crag

Statue of some local shoppers (above), also known as the hags with the bags

Statue of Molly Malone (above), also known as the tart with the cart

The Dublin Spire, also known as the stiletto in the ghetto
