Planning notices at Sandymount Strand [Sandymount, Dublin 4] car park this morning seeking to build a ‘Secret Headquarters’ with among other things, ‘cats, so many cats‘.
I, for one, welcome our new overlords…

Anyone?

Sandymount Strand this morning. Poolbeg towers are safe, hope the incinerator being built next to it will be.

At lunchtime yesterday. FIVE of these went racing past. Gardai arrived soon after these were taken…

A ‘Ringsend Car’.

The vehicles in your Sandymount Chase post reminded me of the original ‘Ringsend cars’ once used to transport passengers across the soggy mudflats of Dublin Bay – a stretch described by one visitor as ‘one of the most horrible stinks of filth I have ever encountered‘.

The cars were simply made and consisted of a frame formed with an axle between two wheels and a bench supported on two shafts slung between them. A bumpy ride!

Francis Elrington Ball, in his History of Dublin, records extremely competitive races by the car drivers on Sandymount strand on their days off.

“Snapped this yesterday evening. Never spotted this happening ever before but the sun set at just the right angle for one Pigeon House smokestack to shade the other. Think it was about 6pm.”
