As one who was at St. Mary's Dominican Convent, Dún Laoghaire... I have to say all those other lesser known schools pale into insignificence. :D :D

Great photos and info. Now I definitely will have to do the tour. I am chomping at the bit!!

Some more photos from Glasnevin cemetery. The first one is the grave of Jim Larkin.
Image

The grave of Maud Gonne Mac Bride and sean Mac Bride.
Image

The grave of Brendan Behan.
Image

Couldn't find out anything about this fellow but he had an impressive gravestone. Presumably a statue of himself with two children. The inscription was unreadable??
Image

Finally our own Mr. Crosthwaite, for whom I presume Crosthwaite Park was named.

What is a better word than brilliant? You have a great eye. That is interesting on Crosthwaite's grave ..I always thought KTC was Kingstown Town Council not Kingstown Township Commissioners ...learning every day.

Greta photos Jemser, will have to try and get in there this "summer" and a visit to the Botanical gardens next door to the cemetery is a must too.

Brilliant photos and info Jemser.

The place just looks so clean and well kept.

I really would love to see around the cemetry.

The statue of the man with the 2 children looks like the picture they had in the school of Edmund Ignatius Rice????

I never knew (or thought about really) that Croswaite Park was named after a person. And Clarinda Park, Clarence St., Smiths Villas, Patrick St. etc. ??

Great Photo's Jemser, Glasnevin is looking really great, a lot of time and effort put into cleaning it all up, Did you get up to the Angel's plot ? It's a credit to the Cemetary considering a few years ago it was like a Tip.

Hi Snowy, yes I was up around the Angel's plot, Brendan Behan's grave is near to it. The Angel's plot is kept very well, you would never guess that it was like a tip a few years ago. They are in the middle of another big restoration of old gravestones for the 100th Anniversary of the 1916 Rising.

Did you get any pic's of it ? I haven't been out there for a year or more :( I have a brother buried in The Angels Plot and it's weird his name is on the headstone twice, one at the top and another at the bottom.

Here are some photos of Glaciers in Prince William Sound in Alaska. These are all taken from aboard a very fast large Cataraman. She is 137 foot long and can take over 300 passengers on three different decks. She is also the fastest cataraman in Alaska and you visit 26 different glaciers in about 5 hours. The Glaciers are fantastic and sometimes they disgorge large pieces fo ice from the Glacial face into the water. This action is called "calving", the ice calves off with a thunderous sound and then drops into the Ocean creating waves, becoming an iceberg, a great natural sight.

I was part of an athletic team that were running in a World Championships in Alaska, this is some of the team on one of the skids of the Cataraman.

Speeding away.

More to follow from Alaska, hope you like them.

They are absolutely stunning photos.

This is like a "wish you were here" forum with all these lovely photos from different countries.

Was the catamaran under sail or motor as that is some wake behind it.

The catamaran must have been huge if they are standing on the skids.

Do you mind me asking were you doing ironman events up that part of the world? - me being nosey again

Navanman, the cat is powered by several very fast engines. I don't know the top speed but she is the fastest cataraman in Alaska, as I said 137 foot long ad 300+ passengers.
We were in a place called Girdwood south of Anchorage to represent Ireland at the World Mountain Running Championships. That was back in 2003 and Alaska is one place I have always longed to revisit. The scenery is spectacular, mountains that go on forever, the wildlife was amazing and the people were the friendliest I have ever come across. Just an amazing place, it would be fantastic to do a cruise out of Seattle or Vancouver up to Anchorage. Anchorage is not the capital of Alaska, Juneau is the capital, it has no roads into it and can only be reached by air. I'll try to post some more photos from Alaska later on today.
