Day Seven--Dublin

O'Neill Pub
This pub has been in continuous operation for 300 years. I ordered Irish stew. I was told I could choose three vegetables to go with the stew. The server then proceeded to put the vegetables in the stew. I also asked for a salad. The server hesitated for a moment then proceeded to put the salad on a separate plate.

The General Post Office in downtown. Headquarters for the IRA during the Easter rebellion in 1916. The building was gutted during the fighting. It was rebuilt in 1929. Bullet damage can still be scene on the front columns.

The Altar at St. Patrick's Cathedral
The interior of the cathedral was awe inspiring. The church choir was practicing while we were here.
