[The Life of Shaun #508] Dublin Scenes

I've been to Dublin several times, so I'll just share a few pics from the latest trip, where veterans Mary Keany and I showed around newbies Marco, Ian and Sushil.  My fondness for this understated city continues unabated.

Cheers,
Shaun

Though it's touristy, I still think Temple Bar...

...and its live music are pretty great.


Me, Sushil and Ian, posterboys for The George.

[The Life of Shaun #507] Two years on

Today is the second anniversary of Mom's death. I don't think a day passes where she doesn't pop into my mind - especially when I see or hear something I know she'd like - but it's not overbearing when it does. I miss her, and I'm supposed to miss her.

To mark the date this year, I am with good friends in Dublin, with reservations at my favourite restaurant, Red Torch Ginger. Good friends, good wine, good food - that's the way to do it.

Cheers to you, Mammy Spammy!
