Photographer's Note

I have posted recently the pictures from the Parnell Street in Auckland - the view of an interesting mural and the Holy Trinity Cathedral.
When I looked in Google to read something about the Parnell Square, I noticed that there is Parnell Square also in Dublin. And strange enough - I was there and it was my favorite place!
So after fake Ireland from Dubai quick jump to real Ireland.

I liked this place very much. The mosaics on the floor and the reflections are wonderful.

The Garden of Remembrance is a large sunken garden designed by Dáithí Hanly and it features a pool in the shape of a non-denominational cross designed to be inclusive of all religions, creeds or colors.
The floor of the cross is lined with mosaics of shattered swords and broken shields - echoing the rituals of ancient clans who would break their weapons at the end of a battle and throw them into the rivers or large bodies of water to symbolize the end of a conflict. The Garden of Remembrance commemorates all Irish uprisings and rebellions from 1798 through Ireland’s more recent “Troubles” of the 20th century. It also features a large statue created by Oisín Kelly of the Children of Lir that signifies rebirth and resurrection and is based on a famous Irish myth.

I looked at many pages on TE and I haven't found any view of this pool. I wonder if Lars went there.
To show the view in both directions I made a collage.

Mariusz knows this church nearby.

I hope that Gert will like this nothing special.
