I WAS SURPRISED BY THE TRAFFIC [THE NORTH CIRCULAR AT HANLON'S CORNER]
The level of lockdown here in Dublin is becoming tedious and I am finding it very difficult to cope but my daily walks do help as does the photography.
For about two weeks I have noticed that the amount of traffic is increasing rapidly despite the fact that strict travel restrictions now apply. I have also noticed that the is also becoming much more difficult to avoid large groups of people this was especially true when I visited Blessington Street Basin on Friday ... in fact I decided to leave as soon as I arrived.
Several notable junctions in Dublin city in Ireland still carry the name (usually unofficially) of the pub or business which once occupied the corner.
While this practice is not unique to Dublin, the pace of recent development there has meant that the original source of the name is more likely to have disappeared.
