Today was a Bank Holiday here in Ireland and at about 7am I was awakened by an amazing amount of noise due to a sporting event on the street where I live and I had np option but to leave my apartment so I decided to visit St Anne's Park. As I left my apartment the weather was beautiful but when I arrived in St Anne's there was a light shower of rain and I had to seek shelter for about fifteen minutes. Two hours later there was a torrential downpour that caused flooding in the park.
Mount Prospect Avenue is a prestigious residential street in Clontarf, Dublin 3. It is located just a short walk from the seafront and St Anne's Park, and is home to some of the most desirable properties in the area.
The avenue was originally developed in the 1860s, and many of the houses on the street are large, period properties. There are also a number of newer apartments and townhouses on the avenue.
