diary editions

"How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people!
How is she become as a widow!
She that was great among the nations,
and princess among the provinces,
How is she become tributary!"
Lamentations 1:1

My father was born near Dublin. I visited Dublin about 35 years ago and loved that city.
As soon as I stepped onto the Irish soil I felt like I was coming home.
In 2011 I visited again....and much to my dismay I did not like Dublin at all...

However..... I did like the Art gallery,  the Nat Museum,   the National Library,
of course the Book of Kells...(from first visit)....our Hotel..Buswell's...near Parliament house where some of the pol's ventured in for lunch....the stunning Riverdance...and Cornupucia vegetarian restaurant and the lovely Wicklow mountains outside of the city...superb!
so I guess there IS much to still enjoy.
