Hopefully you haven’t exceeded your 4o Foot related posts but here is a photography project I did yesterday at the 40 foot. Hopefully you will find it a little different.
The Forty Foot, Sandycove, Co Dublin, this morning.
Thanks Nevan Quinn
Damn shivering hiptards.
….While the [Forty Foot] area is now open to all, there is a secluded section to one side where men tend to congregate. There are also two huts owned by the association – one for changing and one with clubhouse and kitchen facilities – neither available to women.
Many women contribute an annual fee to the [The Sandycove Bathers’ Association for maintenance, but this does not entitle them to membership.

Three people have been arrested and four taken to hospital following a row at the Forty Foot in Sandycove in Dublin this evening. Two groups of men, from East Wall and Crumlin, had arrived on the DART and were drinking throughout the day. A row broke out, bottles were broken and a number of people were injured. Four people were treated in hospital for injuries, including stab wounds and a broken jaw.
