Re: Re: Smithfield, Dublin
Apparently this is the photograph that the New York Times used to depict Dublin in their 46 places to visit in 2013 travel guide.
The tag line was ‘The emerald isle reaches out with an ancestral celebration’, a reference to The Gathering, about which, more later.
Not a lot of ‘ancestral celebration’ evident in the streetscape presentation, as currently being discussed on Joe Duffy. Tourism heads might cringe at the picture choice, but this was an accident waiting to happen, they could have taken shots in Thomas Street or James Street, with the same streetscape horror show.
