It is always interesting to see how a small fishing village where the original inhabitants once struggled to make a living and where conditions were brutally harsh can become a place for the wealthy and famous! Dalkey is on such and the spread of the socially mobile denizens of the city of Dublin along the coast has swallowed it up like a fungus. It brings out the cynic in this Mary!
Not quite the seafront in Bray but out there on the Southside as a reminder of the interment yesterday of the late singer, Sinead O'Connor.
