The Bernard Shaw, in a building built in 1895, is a pub on Richmond Street South in Dublin. I had heard that there was some street art in the vicinity, so a detour was made to that part of Dublin. The building looks like it needs a coat of paint!

Perhaps that’s him on the wall above?

Part of the “Repeal the 8th” campaign, an abortion rights campaign to call for a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland. The 8th amendment criminalizes abortion in all cases except where to continue a pregnancy would result in death of the mother.
In the same area there was a car park… or construction site… or just a series of walls covered with street art and graffiti. Not much of it was noteworthy but here are a few pictures just the same.
