    Okay BS, enough of the “My god arent we Irish so cool now that we can laugh at didley-eye american eyer-ish stereotypes from the 1950’s where it neither exists nor is intended”

      Actually, I found the remark gas because my mum, who was a child in the 50’s told me her and the kids in her estate used to chase cars cos they didn’t see many of them!

    Love this so much… fantastic styling and backdrop but what makes it is the totally unawed kids… the last photo in particular captures exactly what is so wonderful about Dublin.. hopefully as a city we’ll never lose that irreverence…
