Kings In the pub The is located on the corner of Henrietta Street and Bolton Street.
I always sceptical when I see claims such as "established 1842" however Henrietta Street was developed by Luke Gardiner during the 1720 I decided if I could verify the claim [www.libraryireland.com/Dublin-Street-Directory-1862/135.php] and discovered that in 1862 Margaret O'Callaghan owned the Queen's Inns Tavern. This is interesting because King's Inns would have changed its name depending on whether there was a King or Queen in London so if Ireland was still part of the UK it would be Queen's Inns.
Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 English children's tale by Lewis Carroll (a pseudonym of Charles Dodgson). A young girl named Alice falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures. It is seen as a prime example of the literary nonsense genre. Its play with logic gives the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.
Dún Laoghaire's origins are generally assumed to trace back to a fort that is believed to have stood there and mostly likely to have belonged to Lóegaire mac Néill. A 1686 map of Dublin Bay by Greenvile Collins gives the name as Dun Lerroy. A later map from 1728 shows a small fishing village at the old harbour, marked as Dunlary or in other later maps as Dunleary. The earlier village was around the area where the Purty Kitchen pub is now (sometimes mapped as "Old Dunleary"). It had a coffee house and a small cove, both of which are shown on a number of old maps, and it may have had a salt mine (Salthill is close by).
PAINT-A-BOX STREET ART [RECENT EXAMPLES IN DUBLIN 1]
Today did not go well as something went wrong with my Zeiss Batis 25mm lens. Not long after I went for a walk in the city centre it started to vibrate and at the same time making a grinding noise. The problem could only be resolved by removing the batteries but after about fifteen minutes the cycle would repeat. The camera body was damaged back in 2018 when I had a bad fall, damaging a number of ribs, while photographing in Belfast so I suspect that the body rather than the lens is the problem.
Artists Wanted for Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project General News Wednesday, January 6, 2021 DLR COUNTY We’re looking for artists to get involved in the Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project. The first project of its kind in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, it aims to create an open-air art gallery in Dún Laoghaire town, using its walls and doorways as a canvas to showcase the best of urban street art. Initially conceived of as a way to brighten up urban areas and encourage footfall, the Project can perhaps take on a new life in the context of COVID-19. When it comes to fruition in summer 2021, we hope that it might reflect a move towards brighter days, and with it bring an optimism that has been difficult for many to maintain over the last year. We are now inviting interested artists to submit their proposals for consideration. All the details are here – please note that the closing date for receipt of proposals is 5pm on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021. Expressions of interest are also sought from parties interested in managing the Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project. Further information is available from the Economic Development Unit at [email protected].
