Ierland en Noord-Ierland
25 juli - 12 augustus 2019
Trinity College, Dublin. Okay, you don't see more than a tower and some clouds
The library. Not on the picture: the Book of Kells, around 800 AD
Photograph in an exposition about Seamus Heaney, Nobel Prize Literature, who tried to make sense (poetry) of the Troubles
Berthe Morisot, le corsage noir, in the National Gallery
A woman waiting, thinking, writing, drinking tea, looking through the window...? In Ulster Museum in Belfast
The watcher, by Irish painter George Russell
Autumnal sorrows, by Frank O'Meara, also Irish
The green coat, Sir John Lavery (painted in 1926)
Houses in Derry
Mural in the Bogside, where the Troubles started 50 years ago
Annette McGavigan (14), shot by the British army on September 6th, 1971
Tower Museum about Irish history. A history with everlasting conflicts between catholics and protestants, nationalists and unionists. Either of them beating their drum.
A pic from a pic. I recommend reading The Milkman, written by Anna Burns
'Music' on the city walls of Derry
A lady who travelled ages
And a nobleman who did the same
Young dancers on the wall
Galway harbour, my house would be the red one
Painting of The Spanish Arch, in Galway
Arriving in Limerick, on time
Embrace, painted by Irish painter Mary Swanzy. The embrace
Robert Ryan, also exposed in the Limerick Gallery of Art. Could be Ireland, the isolated isle, or England, after the Brexit. Or me, longing for company...
Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland, founded by the vikings in the 9th century
The lady of chess, thinking about her next move
Harbour city..., or actually a ship in the sky. Could be a nice song
And another mural, made by Waterford street artists. I'm still thinking about her name.
Above are the city pictures, here you find the hiking pictures.
