I began my day walking up to the north side of the Liffy to Capel Street. I found Brother Hubbard Restaurant with a middle eastern style of menu, and with home-made breads. When I first came to Ireland, there was great bread all over— the nice brown bread that was difficult to leave alone. I haven’t found any yet. It used to be served with tea or soups as a matter of course.
I continued north to the Gate Theater to see a new production of The Snapper, filled with a sell out crowd and done well. On the way home I meandered through the shops near Henry Street, found a great bargain backpack at Penny’s, hommus and sweet potato flatbread at Dunnes Stores, and had tea & soup at Mark & Spencer for an early supper. I never would have put mint into pea soup but it’s lovely. Finally home and resting.
I want to share a couple shrines that were at the museum visit yesterday. I took a photo that was prove positive of what a giant of a man Saint Patrick was. You can imagine if this shrine was made for only one tooth how large his head and the rest of his body was.
Along with this was a shrine for Saint Brigit’s shoe as well, and she seems to have a small foot.
On the way home there were so many food choices, including my favorite Spanish meal, a tortilla. I never would have thought to find this in a package!
