Walking home from work recently i spotted the sign below, peeping up from behind a high wall on Mount Brown Road in Kilmainham. A bird garden. I’d never heard of such a thing but it seemed like such a great idea. I find it a treat to catch any little glimpse of nature in the middle of a city. Especially something as unexpected as a bird garden!

Tramore has a reputation for being tacky and rundown. I love the tack. Those flaking neon rusting paints may look crap in the summer but in the lonely, cold, rainy greys of winter the flashing slot machine lights and folded up rollercoasters look like magic hibernating. Still with a pulse, but not making noise for a while. A sleeping beast.
In recent years Tramore has also become somewhat magic when it comes to coffee too.
