My plan to visit the Phoenix Park visitor centre (at Ashtown Castle) went a little awry this morning. Due to the a running race, most of the park gates were closed and when we eventually got to the centre we were advised that we should be out by 12.30 otherwise we would not get out until 4.30. We only arrived at 12.10!
So with literally 15 minutes to spend we didn't even get to watch the video about the park.
I spend the time looking at an exhibition of the Pope's visit to the park in 1979. Above is a model of the altar which was designed by architects Scott Tallon Walker.
We then headed to my mams for a nice Sunday dinner
The wreath on the front door is Summery, but the weather is not!
