The tower in the background is the tower of LLoyd. Built on the backs of people dying of hunger.

Whats "Teach an tSolais" ? House of the light ? Lighthouse ?

Righteo, your turn to post a photo.

I'll give you a clue. It was situated at the bottom of a garden behind a house I used to live in once upon a long ago. I think Sisk built it and Bertie took lettuce leaves to wreck the cabbage patch. Oh and the NRA are gonna build a pond under it

I was thinking of Brownshill dolmen - but then there's no NRA activity on the Hacketstown road...

What about Meath..? I'm thinking around Rath Lugh or Tailte.

There's a big AIB office near Connolly and Busaras but I don't think it's that either - if only because the glass looks greenier there than in the image. I presume it's somewhere city centre - seeing as you want to compensate for excessive culchiness thusfar?

You may say that, but I couldn't possibly comment.

It's not that, but by going from IFSC to Ulster Bank, you're getting closer and warmer.

So it is the AIB office block - I can't think of the exact name - but am I right?

Just read your last comment. Hmmm. Closer geographically by moving in towards town?? AIB is the other direction.
