Thursday Doors: Half English Half Irish.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North Americaneastern time), by using the blue link-up button on the bottom of Norm2.0 post which is here.

This is my contribution this week which like me half English and half Irish.

Rules and Pingback here

Yes I am not kidding I am English  born and bred but my Father being Irish has instilled a great deal of the Celt in me.

For this week’s offering I have two Doors from local to where I live and two doors from Dublin.

The top photo is part of long row of terraced cottages situated at a place called Holyport.They are grade two listed buildings. They all have beautiful gardens and green front doors. The photo was taken in the summer.

The second photo of is an old style English pub the type you can still find all over the place. Luckily not taken over by a large chain who want all their pubs to be clones of each other!

In 2008 my husband took me to Dublin to to visit my Dad’s birthplace. We had had looked out my Dad’s birth certificate and so knew the address. We went to find it on the second day of our visit, we found the road. Gloucester Street South. Sadly the house had been knocked down, even more sadly very recently. There was a fireplace in the wall… I wandered was it the fireplace  that had been in my grandparent’s room.

Yes I did say room in those days, around  1905, there were about 10 rooms let in a house this size, at least 10 people to each family so at least 100 people per house. Imagine that! These are my photos but I did look on Google earth today and the area around has been developed but not that particular site. The only difference today is the fire place is gone!

The brightly coloured building in the  second  photo  is the Pub  The  Oliver St John Gogarty, named after  the author, poet,surgeon,politician and athlete who also inspired the  James Joyce character Buck Mulligan in his book Ulysses. The pub is situated in the cultural Temple Bar area.Great Music!

That is  my  post  for  this  week!
