Dublin - October 15 - 18
We arrived in Dublin and have been staying with a very nice woman, Glenda, who is associated with the Irish Anti-War Movement. Glenda lives in a 200-year-old house built on a row of worker's houses which was originally owned by a family who made hats from beaver skins. They had a chapel in back of the house.
We took a double-decker bus into town and listened to Flann O’Brien presentations at Trinity College with Glenda.
Close to Trinity is the Occupy Dame Street encampment – it is small, looks like about 10-20 people sleep there. Lots of great signs and the people are friendly.
