Today at lunchtime I went to Patrick’s Park by Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin’s Liberties. There weren’t that many people around and the day was rather mild. I suppose it being early February the tourists had yet to arrive in force. In fact there were none around at all at all.

The park itself is not particularly large and you can see everyone rambling about inside. Stuck between two very busy rows of traffic the park is an oasis of silence, which is oblivious to the outside world. The atmosphere was quiet and sedate. One person was reading a book, a few others sitting on a seat talking; someone else was eating their lunch. A small fountain in the centre of the park bubbled away silently. I didn’t hang around too long and left after ten minuets savouring the moment.
