Thursday Doors

08-02-18

It’s been ages since I contributed to the “Thursday Doors” blog over at Norm 2.0 . I haven’t been on any door forays recently having taken photo’s of all the interesting doors in the city !!! or so I thought. While I was out on a photowalk with the photobuddies last week we discovered an interesting building tucked away on a backstreet in between modern high rise developments.

St Patrick’s Church & School – Royal East Street_1300455_HDR

One of the photobuddies found some interesting information on the history of the school.
It seems the school and attached church were in use from the mid 1800’s to the 1930’s The recess to the right of the door apparently held a statue of St Patrick. I hope the building is restored and put to good use, too many lovely buildings have been demolished around the town.

The bright reflections were coming from the windows of a modern office block. 

Looks like I need to investigate some more of the back streets in the city and see what I can find.
