Dublin is the rare bird of fashion photography. It combines the old and the New in a salubrious chocolate box of melted greys and browns with flashy greens and blues. It is a cacophony of style, combining the trendy non belted Chanels with the leather overcoat of hipster modern.
Here is a video of protests which took place in Dublin in October 2018. The protest revolves around issues regarding housing in Ireland, farming, and homelessness. The homeless figure is now just below 10,000!
