Yorker with an Irish dream #Dublin #TempleBar
Need some motivations....Wish me good luck this week!!!
Dublin, what a fun city 🍻
“Around 1610 Shakespeare wrote “The Tempest” and retired to Stratford on Avon where he died in 1613. Queen Elizabeth I, having completed the conquest of Ireland, was dead. The last of the Irish leaders, O’Neill and O’Donnell were gone to Spain and Ulster planted with crown subjects. Between 1613 and the War of Independence 1922 which won back self rule for most of Ireland, no play of any real merit was written in the English Language by anyone other than an Irish born writer.
Now riddle me this; who conquered who?” . .

An Irish harp on display in the Trinity College Library, Dublin.
One of the grander harp designs, the original owner of this harp is unknown. Due to its grandness it is expected this harp belonged to a top Harpist and was played to many statesman.
Even a short stay in Dublin is like walking into literary history, accompanied by music 🎶 🎻
Wherever you go whatever you do may the Luck of the Irish be there with you ☘️
