Hmm I'm not sure Mary - markets are a bit busy for random sketchers to be wandering around trying to draw! I'd love to call up there after sketching though maybe!!
Yes, have to agree Tracy, but I also intend to pay it a visit afterwards.Someone mentioned the Docks, sounds good!
I won't be around this weekend; going down to Kinsale where there should be plenty of good sketching opportunities. How did last Sunday go at the skateboarding? There's a distinct lack of posts to the site!
Last Sunday, eh? We were bold, did nothing of note (speaking for myself at least), watched the skateboarders... Actually I think apologies are due to several people we may have lost on the way - Sinead, Aisling (?) and another man who is apparently good with watercolours - there was a bit of a mix-up regarding where to after sketching
As an idea - who likes trains??KINGSTOWN SPECIAL - STEAM TRAIN CELEBRATIONA celebration of 175 years of the first train line in Ireland is taking place in Dun Laoghaire on Sun 02 Aug at the Dun Laoghaire Dart Station and with entertainment from 12:30-17:30 on the Harbour Plaza. In association with the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland and Iarnrod Eireann, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council present The Kingstown Special, a majestic historic old steam train so that people can travel back in time on a grand old steam train with vintage railway carriages and a beautifully restored snack and bar café.

The entire route forms part of the present day Dublin Area Rapid Transit electrified commuter rail system. This same route will be used for the Kingstown Special on August 2nd.http://www.dlrevents.ie/special.html
Hehe, the skateboarding was fantastic but proved quite difficult to capture. I got some terrible sketches and worse photos. Then I sat back and watched :)
