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!

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.

At one end of the street is this mural by Marcamix, Evolve Urban Arts.
