Alan Wall (of Workhouse) sent this on to us via Twitter. You’ll need to click on the image to enlarge it and explore. A fantastic idea, the top half shows a composite of Stoneybatter as it appears in Éamonn MacThomais’ Dublin:A Personal View. Below it, Alan has placed a composite of Stoneybatter today via Google Street View. The buildings themselves are the same, of course shopfronts and businesses have changed, but look at L.Mulligan’s pub! L.Mulligan’s is a favourite haunt of mine today, loyal to the cause of the microbrewery.
MacThomais’ Dublin:A Personal View is available to view in full on YouTube today, and is a truly fantastic effort, the mans love and enthusiasm for Dublin shone through in all he did. Here is the first part to enjoy.
