"Goat To The Top Of The Mountain" by Sinead Tyner.
For some reason I could not get my GPS to work during my walk along Goatstown Road so my photographs were not geo-tagged. As soon as I returned to Roebuck Road the problem resolved itself.
Located Grand Canal Street Lower in Dublin. Actually I would describe it as being at Hogan Place between Upper Erne Street and Harmony Row as I once lived in the area.
PAINT-A-BOX STREET ART - THE BOOK OF KELLS BY DAVID MacKEY
Using the Book of Kells with Ardagh Chalice and High Cross imagery of ancient Ireland, combined with the Harp Emblem of Ireland to bring together elements of Pearse Street and Trinity College.
Dublin Canvas is an idea, a project intended to bring flashes of colour and creativity to everyday objects in the City. Less grey, more play!
Dublin Canvas runs late from Spring and finishes by late Autumn.
A new callout for submissions of artwork is made at the beginning of Spring. The selection process takes place and then artwork is painted throughout the Summer, right through until late Autumn months.
In 2021 all artwork will be completed by early October.
This Paint-A-Box Street Art is located on Adelaide Road in Dublin 2 and is not far from Leeson Street Bridge.
Painted back in 2018 it was designed to be a representation of stained glass windows in order to bring some nature and colour into the grey streets of the city.
I have photographed a few examples of street art by Juliette Viodé
Juliette Viodé who describes herself as follows:
"I am a mural artist and illustrator based and working in Dublin. I studied animation and illustration in Dublin and since graduating have been heavily involved in the street art scene. I was formerly the lead artist for the Dublin Canvas Project. Through this initiative, I designed and painted a series of small and large scale murals around the city. I am now working as a freelance artist and have continued to paint murals, in particular for disadvantaged communities, helping them re-take pride in their areas. I have also worked extensively with kids with learning disabilities, showing them new tools to communicate ideas."
"Street art is not my only focus though, I have pursued my work as an illustrator through several commissioned pieces and exhibitions. I’ve most recently worked for the Sun-Pilot project at the Advanced Materials and Bioengineering Research centre in Trinity College Dublin (TCD) as part of their education and public engagement program. In this project I designed illustrations to explain scientific concepts to children. The artwork I created will be used in schools throughout the EU as a teaching tool."
"My work is vibrant, cheerful and character-centric."

Eccles Street began on 6 March 1769 when Isaac-Ambrose Eccles leased three parcels of land in the area. The street is named after his family, including his grandfather Sir John Eccles, Lord Mayor of Dublin 1710–11.
In James Joyce's novel Ulysses (published 1922, set in 1904), the protagonist Leopold Bloom lives at 7 Eccles Street, and the building was treated as a landmark by Joyce fans. No. 7 was demolished in 1967 by the neighbouring Dominican convent as part of an extension development to their school.The door was saved.
The Mater Hospital purchased the plot of land in 1975, building the Mater Private Hospital on the site which opened in 1986. The site also has a large surface carpark. The new development saw 36 Georgian houses demolished, despite preservation orders and resistance from groups including An Taisce and the Arts Council.The order then began buying up more Georgian properties on the south side of the street. The windows and doors of three listed houses were illegally blocked up and others were left vacant.
The Mater invited an inspection of the three Georgian houses by Dublin Corporation in February 1988, when they were deemed dangerous. As a result, the buildings were ordered to be demolished to first or second floor windowsill level. The houses were occupied by the group Students Against the Destruction of Dublin, and legal proceedings ultimately led to them vacating to allow the demolition to go ahead. The legal case revealed that the Mater Hospital Pools had funded the purchase of 28 of the houses on the south side of the street. By 1988, 2 properties were derelict, 13 were partly or wholly vacant, including 3 already condemned. It emerged that they were aware the roofs had failed in the three condemned buildings as early as 1986, and had done no repair work allowing for the ultimate destruction of the buildings.
There is plaque at painter Leo Whelan's former home, 67 Eccles Street.
