SG Map 668

As in most large cities, Dublin has a number of large parks where people often come to feel apart from the hustle and bustle of every-day city life. St. Steven’s Green was originally a medieval commons and as such was the site for many executions. In 1664, the area was enclosed and over time was surrounded by some fine Georgian buildings. Today the park provides Dubliners and tourists with 22 acres of green grass, trees, a pond, and a serene place to relax.  

The photographs below were taken on a sunny day that brought lots of people out to the park.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
