Photographer's Note

The evil thing about weather in Ireland is not that the sun is not there at all but that it shows up usually on the working days and if on the weekend then just shortly.
That was the case on the Easter Sunday. Until 13.00 the sky was blue and people were wearing T-shirts (in spite of temperature being 13C). Shortly after that dense dark heavy clouds appeared and stayed there till the end of the Monday.
The funny thing is that for Dubliners it was still a pretty day, because for them if it is "dry" it is wonderful, and let's be honest: why do you need sun? If your main concern is not to get wet while coming back from a pub...

I started to discover churches in Dublin, I have already uploaded photos of two Dublin churches before. Here is probably the most interesting one:
Christ Church Cathedral.

DK guidebook to Ireland:
Christ Church Cathedral was established by the Hiberno-Norse king of Dublin, Sitric "Silkbeard", and the first bishop of Dublin, Dunan. It was rebuilt by the Anglo-Norman archbishop, John Cumin in 1186. It is the cathedral for the Church of Ireland (Anglican) diocese of Dublin and Glendalough. By the 19th century it was in a bad state, but was completely remodelled by architect George Street in the 1870s.

The bridge to the Synod Hall (in the left) was added when the cathedral was being rebuilt in the 1870s.
Synod Hall was up to 1983 a home to the ruling body of the Church of Ireland, then a nightclub (!) then a site of Dublinia exhibition. www.dublinia.ie

This photo here is so bright not due to any PP but just due to the rare sunlight.
I have just corrected wide angle lens distortion in AP.
