Windmill Lane, Dublin Docklands.
Moya Brennan of Clannad and Editor of Hot Press Niall Stokes at the unveiling of an unusual exhibition ‘remembering the musical legacy of Windmill Lane through album covers and concerts’.
A total of 21 sleeves (including titles from The Hot House Flowers, Clannad and six U2 albums) of the most famous long players recorded or partially recorded at the studio (now, according to Rotide, a ‘soulless office building’) are lodged inside glassed panels on the pavement outside in a display entitled, the Windmill Lane Vinyl Walkway.

“This is what’s left of Windmill Lane. All the graffiti walls on one side are gone with the other soon to follow. Another piece of the city’s cultural history destroyed to make way for more empty offices.”
