Read in the paper today that a statue of Roger Casement is to be erected as part of the Baths' redevelopment.
He was born in Doyle's Cottage, Lawson Terrace, Sandycove......I looked it up. :lol:

There I was looking at old nostalgic photos of Vienna when a lightbulb went ping!!

1985 at the Donauinsel an artificial island in the Danube within the city....looks a bit like what was proposed for Dún Laoghaire but I've heard they cannot proceed with anything because the walls of the old baths are holding up the roadway at Newtown Smith ..oops..
