A MURAL AT MOUNTJOY SQUARE PARK
A few years ago I was advised by the police (Garda Síochána) that it was not safe for me to photograph in the area as they had been made aware that my camera was attracting attention. Of course I took their advice and left area but I could never decide if what they said was a general comment or related to a specific incident or current activity.
