    eugh….well that wouldn’t be to my tastes but it harks back to a time pre-1970’s when brickies, plasterers and carpenters lived their trades and would carry some serious artistic skill into the work, there’s some stunning brickwork and flooring about the place if you look carefully for it.

    it’s hard to make out the perspective but I’d be FAR more interested in the base of that wall which seems to have become or is being used as a planter box for the flowers….damp is the enemy in those old walls

    If this is the basement of a building on Dawson Street I have a story about this, told to me in Grogan’s in the early 90’s by the infamous Liam Brady, a cell mate of Behan in the Curragh, drinking buddy of Kavanagh. He told me that painter from the old’s McDaid’s day lived there, I can’t remember his name, but he was from the north, had small goatee and drank in Grogan’s. The sculptor Des McNamara made it.
