Norm’s Thursday Doors


Dublin

College Green, Dublin

I am finally back blogging again, after a hectic month with family visiting from all over, and finishing up with my youngest son’s wedding to the love of his life in Dublin last weekend.

On a stroll around Dublin on Sunday morning (maybe to clear some heads), we came across these very ornamental gates/doors into the Ulster Bank – I don’t think anyone would attempt trying to get through these doors after hours!   This is a beautiful building, as you can see from the impressive carved pillars on each side.

Further along the street, we visited another bank, this one has been turned into a restaurant, while still retaining all the characteristics of it’s former home, and the vaults downstairs still have the original safes, as you can see…I wonder if there are any forgotten gems inside?

    I love that old building, Joan, the ironwork is beautiful.
