Bachelor’s Way, Dublin 1
By photographer Andy Sheridan (more of his laneway pics at link below) writes:
This laneway, linking Bachelor’s Walk with Middle Abbey Street, Is known as Bachelor’s Way.
In various old maps I have also seen it called Williams Lane and also Williams Row.
It is by Williams Row that it gets a brief mention in Joyce’s Ulysses): ‘Mr Dedalus, tugging a long moustache, came round from Williams’s row. He halted near his daughter.’
Far from such literary heights, it’s a laneway all too often occupied by junkies and smells too much like a sewer for my liking. It’s not one that I care to venture down very often…
Dublin’s scariest thoroughfare?
Only YOU can decide.

Andy Sheridan tweetz:
As I walked along Coburg Street [in Cork City], I was struck by the moonlight washing over the rear roofs of the Georgian buildings to the South on Camden Place.

Via The Irish Times:
And so to the idea of doing something for Pieta House this weekend. As Andy Sheridan says, everyone has their reasons when it comes to Darkness Into Light. His come from the death of his brother Seán, who took his own life in 2015. None of this is explainable, none of it is easy. You do what you can do.
And for this week, in this place, this is what Andy Sheridan can do. Show 36 photos of Dublin in darkness, shards of lights poking and flashing here and there, in the hope that people will like them and buy them and help lighten some of the load carried every day by Pieta House.
“He had his reasons, I guess,” Andy says of his brother. “Though that’s of little consolation. I, and everyone else who knew him, still keenly feel the pain and chaos that continue to reverberate from that burst of dark energy. Which is why I have decided to try, in my way, to do something to help.”
