Dublin on a Chilly Sunday Morning.

Dublin can be Heaven, with Coffee at Eleven

And a Stroll in Stephens Green

No Need to Hurry, No Need to Worry,

You’re a King and the Lady’s a Queen

Grafton Street’s a Wonderland

There’s Magic in the Air

There are Diamonds in the Lady’s Eyes

and Gold-dust in Her Hair

And if you Don’t Believe Me, Come and Meet Me There

in Dublin on a Sunny Sunday Morning

This song, also called the Dublin Saunter,  was first recorded in 1940 by a well known Irish actor, Noel Purcell, and was written by Leo Maguire.   You can listen to the song, sung by Paddy Reilly,who sang with the Dubliners for a few years,  here.

    It looks like a great time to visit. I was there in January a few years ago and had a really good time. I wish I could have stayed longer. I could say the same thing for everywhere we went in Ireland. Thanks for the nice photos! 🙂



I would love to hear what you think!
