Second one is the Yellow House in Rathfarnham. And I'd agree with grammer on the first photo.

the Rathmines town hall clock remind me of my worst school year which was in Louise National - had to pass it en-route. there was a shorter way via Leinster Avenue, but we couldn't take it as that meant going past the private school.

The Yellow House remind me of chess games played upstairs

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain

Like the song some of these are gone but some are still there. Lets see how many you can get.
It starts off outside D/L and goes over to the Northside and you need four buildings and one street.
