around Bernard Shaw

The Bernard Shaw, in a building built in 1895, is a pub on Richmond Street South in Dublin.  I had heard that there was some street art in the vicinity, so a detour was made to that part of Dublin.  The building looks like it needs a coat of paint!

an old black building, the Bernard Shaw pub, built 1895, with street art on either side of it.

Perhaps that’s him on the wall above?

below: “Our bodies, our lives, our choice” mural.  Part of the “Repeal the 8th” campaign, an abortion rights campaign to call for a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland.  The 8th amendment criminalizes abortion in all cases except where to continue a pregnancy would result in death of the mother.

In the same area there was a car park…  or construction site…  or just a series of walls covered with street art and graffiti.  Not much of it was noteworthy but here are a few pictures just the same.

below: This one accompanies a happy birthday and I love you message written for Angela, presumably written by Caolan.

graffiti that says angela & caolan. Angela is in pink letters and caolan is in blue. the e in angela is a lock and the L in caolan is a key. The key fits into the lock.
