      Any more images ye’d like to add?** some obvious omissions in there. Lovely shot of the Dept of Finance; ok that elevation is a little insensitive for the site but is excellent in itself.

      cows lane does get a mention but not the people who know how to touch wood…
      Croke Park? I like one of the stands but…
      The tower in cork?
      Harcourt St with the poles shows how its done if you wannabe be tied up well…
      O’Connell St I admire apart from some small things and agree the trees deserved to get it.
      clinkers? anything else?
