Oscar Wilde Statue  in Merrion Square, Dublin   Had my photo taken here in 2004 "the fag on the crag", the queen with the leer", "the quare on the square"

This famous (and sassy) statue of Oscar Wilde sits in Merrion Square in the hear of Dublin City. The statue is also not too far away from the home where Wilde grew up!

Destruction in Dublin following the 1916 Easter Rising  This picture I picked for a very different reason than the others.  First of all, it's less than 100 years old, but also it's a topic I'm not as familiar with, but would like to learn more about.  There's always something more to learn, no matter how much you have always learned.
