Thanks for all the comments and fun today. The Mystery car issue is fascinating, was O'Dea a lazy photographer, did he just park his car in the first available space, or was he as some have suggested (hoped), setting a puzzle for the future viewers of his fantastic photographs.

I for one hope it is the latter, and that Mr O'Dea wherever he might be is having a good laugh at our expense.

I must say that I am disappointed with the lack of a Mystery Car Limerick.

This line was closed because it was losing a couple of thousand pounds a year, it cost many hundreds of millions of euro to open part of it again in the naughties, progress indeed.
