Dun Laoghaire, 8am


Rog writes:

Due to the DART not operating between Dun Laoghaire [Co Dublin] and Bray [Co Wicklow] this morning, people were walking from Sandycove to Dun Laoghaire along the ‘metals’.

I followed suit, and by the People’s Park, we came across this lovely scene (above)…there are about 8 to 10 people shimmying along the metal fence to avoid the massive puddle in the middle of the metals!  Apologies for lack of Instagrammage!

            Yeah and if they died we could have people leaving inappropriate and/or competely shit jokes in the comments section.

    Ha ha, that’s great. Looks like they’ve all been sucked into one of those Super Mario Levels where you have to smack the fence to turn it around to escape danger.

    Love the way they make such a big deal out of stating what counties are which:

    “Dun Laoghaire [Co Dublin] and Bray [Co Wicklow]”

    Like an episode of Total Wipeout. Never a load of automated boxing gloves when you need them, is there?

      Its an old pathway that runs from Dalkey to Dun Laoghaire. It follows the train line most of the way. Its a very pleasant walk.

    I can almost hear the stories in the pub later, in proper Kevin McAleer shtyle – “Ah, the morning we shimmied along the metals”.

    @ Bilko – the metals is the long pedestrian track alongside the dart tracks which was used to transport granite from Dalkey Quarry to Dun Laoghaire to make the Dun Laoghaire piers…

      I didn’t know the term either, according to Wikipedia it’s a term for the under-track ballast as well.

    the metals is normally so covered in dog faeces, so the rain is a welcome relief as DLRCC can’t bother their arse.

    considerate dog lovers and local authoriy enforcement, both oxymorons

          Hmmm. I did enjoy the ‘considerate dog lovers’ comment. Presumably they’re the ones who pay for contraception and call the next day.
