Molly, My Irish MoLi, and more

The Mansion house in all its splendour,

Day trip with mum to an antiques fair,

Escape from our tin roof holiday rental,

Just me and her, a love of old shared.

Head to Merrion Square and you will find museums and art galleries there,

On summer weekends local artists display their work in the open air.

Bringing you

The social history of childhood of all

Growing up on the island

Of Ireland

And amongst the Irish diaspora too

– Ekaterina Tikhoniouk

Where the old ash tree that Joyce stood next to, on graduating from UCD can be seen.

– Mary B Shannon
