Dublins Docklands

Was at a course in Dublin last night, I had a project to hand in it took 2 hours to get there as traffic was mad. It was a long night, didn't finish until nearly 10pm and it was tough going so to cheer myself up before I headed home I took a few pics looking back at the docklands. It was very quiet and quite bright at that time. I have another version of this which I will post soon.

 

Useless dockland fact; Docklands Fact

A downtrodden Leprosy hospice was located on Misery hill, hence its name! It was believed lepers were “the unclean” and would be walked to the hospice on Misery Hill with 1 man tolling a bell and another carrying a 40 foot pole to keep everyone at safe distance. Today this is where we get the expression “I wouldn’t touch him with a 40 foot pole!”
