Friday Fun: Ireland in the Sun To the tune of ‘Islands in the Sun’, here are some pictures from our lovely trip to Ireland last week. My favourite place indoors, of course. Trinity College Library. Guess what symbol this is? View over Dublin and Howth. Wicklow Mountains. No sun but spectacular clouds blowing past. Old monastery, graveyard and siege-ready tower. Lough Bray Lower. The sea, the sea at Bray. The grounds at Malahide Castle. Cosy three-bedroom medieval castle at Malahide. This was a common sight in Ireland and reminded me how I’ve never seen the Union Jack flying together with the EU flag in the UK even before the Brexit vote.
