More scenes from Dublin

Here are a few more photos from the week in Dublin. I had to unexpectedly return home, so further exploration of Ireland will have to wait for a future visit.

In Dublin's Docklands, near the Santiago Calatrava-designed Samuel Beckett Bridge, is the Famine Memorial. These haunting statues show those who suffered during the Great Potato Famine. The statues are near the tall ship Jeanie Johnston, which lead Irish emigrants to America during these years.
