Sandycove, county Dublin.
Anyone working today?
Just us so.
Forty Foot, Sandycove, county Dublin.
This day 47 years ago – 20 July 1974 – a group of women protested the hitherto male-only bathing place of Forty Foot, Sandycove, Co Dublin.
Among those protesting were journalist Nell McCafferty, politician Nuala Fennell and poet Mary D’Arcy.
From then on, the area was shared. pic.twitter.com/r8KX34Ry8D
