The Pig Demon of Dublin

I was going through my photos from our recent trip to Dublin, and I came across this little gem. I had completely forgotten that while exploring the city we had looked up to discover this chap staring down at us from the window above a local butcher.

Watching.
 
Waiting.
 
Now the question is this: is he watching and making a note of all those who have purchased the meat of his kin, or is he actually farming his own kind to make a profit from the sale of their flesh?
 
Is he the perpetrator, or the avenger?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone.

I was actually in Dublin this weekend with Frankie, on a city break. We missed being there for day itself but I can only imagine trying to get around the city today or this weekend will be hell, so I kind of glad we went last weekend rather than this one.

If ever you do find yourselves in Dublin, I can only recommend The Old Storehouse on Temple Bar for the music and atmosphere.

However, I did stay in a hotel directly the home of one Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde.
